Breast, Colon, and Prostate Cancer Data Quality and Patterns of Care (PoC1) Study
In 2001, CDC's National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) began its first patterns of care cancer study called the Breast, Colon, and Prostate Cancer Data Quality and Patterns of Care (PoC1) study. Each of the seven participating registries is part of the NPCR. Several articles have been published—
