Standardizing reporting of brain and central nervous system tumors in the United Kingdom. Neuro-oncology

Background: Routine reporting of descriptive population-based brain tumor epidemiological data is important for evaluating incidence trends, providing clues for putative risk factors, benchmarking outcomes, and stimulating research into the causes of this deadly disease. We propose to standardize reporting of cancer registry data for brain tumors in the United Kingdom through researcher-led collaborations.
