Aproaches to quality control with an application to a new cancer registry in a developing country.
Quality control should be maintained in all disease registries by appropriate statistical procedures to assure complete, accurate, reliable, and timely morbidity and mortality data.
Shewhart control charts are recommended for evaluating item completeness.
Accuracy and reliability can be evaluated with stringent diagnostic criteria, re-abstraction of records, and statistical measures such as the kappa statistic.
Discrepancies between observed and expected data in various time periods can be used to evaluate whether data entering a registry meet timeliness criteria.
The reporting delay distribution can be used to examine timeliness of reported data and to adjust incidence rates for potential lack of timeliness in reporting.
