$6 Million Medical Research Future Fund

This funding will support the establishment of an Australian Brain Cancer Registry (ABCR) to improve quality of life and survival for a cancer group that has not seen any noticeable change in outcomes in decades. With this grant, Brain Cancer Biobanking Australia (BCBA) and project partners, Cancer Alliance Queensland (CAQ) and the Australian e-Health Research Centre at CSIRO, will establish the ABCR by developing infrastructure, natural language processing and a data dictionary to enable the automated electronic collection of the data points required to report Clinical Quality Indicators.

Queensland Cancer Quality Index

The Queensland Cancer Quality Index reports on all Queenslanders diagnosed with cancer from 2006-2020. This report includes not only surgical outcomes but indicators for Multidisciplinary team (MDT) review, radiotherapy, and intravenous systemic therapy in public and private hospitals. The Cancer Index is a tool for reviewing, comparing, and sharing with the public, information on the safety and quality of cancer treatments and outcomes. It offers a new perspective, and it is an important source of information for understanding our current cancer care services across the state.

Cancer Data Explorer

The new Queensland Cancer Data Explorer is a dashboarding tool allowing users to access information on the number of new cases of cancer (incidence), deaths due to cancer (mortality) and cancer survival. The data is sourced from the Queensland Cancer Register, a database containing information on Queenslanders diagnosed or dying from cancer since 1982.  The tool is freely available to the general public, researchers, clinicians and government bodies alike.

Queensland Breast Cancer Quality Index

The Breast Cancer Quality Index reports on 10 years of data from 2010-2019, and not only includes surgical outcomes but practice quality indicators for multidisciplinary team review, radiation therapy (external beam) and intravenous systemic therapy treatment. This report is a tool for reviewing and comparing information on the safety and quality of cancer treatment.
