The quality of cancer registry data is of great importance to the usefulness of a cancer registry.
To investigate the quality of its data the IKL cancer registry (Integraal Kankercentrum limburg) performed a study with the aim of comparing data supplied by clinicians with data collected by registration personnel.
Twenty clinicians reabstracted the information of a random sample of about ten of their patients, who were diagnosed with cancer in 1989 or 1990.
After coding, the information was compared with the contents of the cancer registry records.
For comparison of agreement the information of 190 cases was available.
