QCR Merge

The Director General of the Department of Health has mandated that from 7 May 2018, the management and staffing responsibilities for the Queensland Cancer Register (QCR) will be merging with the Cancer Alliance Queensland, which incorporates The Partnership and Queensland Cancer Control Analysis Team (QCCAT), part of the Metro South Hospital and Health Service.  This change will allow the Director General to continue to meet legal requirements to collect cancer incidence and mortality information for Queensland. The Cancer Alliance Queensland have demonstrated advanced capabilities in oncology information management for Queensland. QCCAT has leveraged from work already completed to develop and replace the outdated QCR data collection system with a sophisticated data collection application known as QOOL-R.

As part of the merge the QCR's office location and contact details has changed. Please click here to contact us. Find more information about the QCR.
