The results of ongoing monitoring of cancer survival in Ireland are published on a regular basis in NCR reports and on our website, and reported to the Department of Health and Children, the HSE and the OECD. Further work is planned to publish the first national estimates of longer-term (ten-year) relative survival and of ‘cure’ proportions for major cancer types. In addition, the Registry is involved in a range of collaborative survival studies with research or clinical colleagues in Ireland, the UK and Europe. The studies currently underway include EUROCARE-5, CONCORD-2, UK/Ireland survival comparisons and projects on breast cancer, melanoma and childhood cancer survival
