Sir Michael Richards – Department of Health, UK

Sir Michael Richards talks with ecancer at the 2012 NCRI meeting in Liverpool, UK about the use of cancer registry data.  The importance and complexity of these databases stems from the large number of types of inequalities that can arise; for example age and race, and in terms of the different types of cancer.  The large complexities this presents shows the need for larger global registries to house data for analysis.
