For men who choose to participate, PCOR-ANZ will facilitate the local collection of data from medical files and telephone and web surveys with men themselves, on the outcomes of their prostate cancer journey.
The focus of PCOR-ANZ is to collect data at population level that covers:
- All patients;
- All prostate cancer procedures;
- All healthcare professionals; and
- All locations across Australia and New Zealand.
The data within PCOR-ANZ will be reported back to clinicians, allowing them to understand how their patients are progressing as compared with other men in participating jurisdictions. It will also be used for research purposes, which we hope will see additional improvements in quality of care and outcomes for men diagnosed with prostate cancer.
