Abstract

The Australian and New Zealand Thyroid Cancer Registry (ANZTCR) is a clinical quality registry established in 2017 that collects the diagnosis, treatment and outcome data of individuals with thyroid cancer, presenting at public and private health services. This report presents key findings from the ANZTCR’s first two years of data collection.

In 2019, the ANZTCR presented at key College, Society and Jurisdictional meetings in Victoria, Queensland and Bangkok. The registry welcomed new Steering Committee members representing the Australian Society of Head and Neck Surgeons (ASOHNS) as well as a radiation oncologist/researcher from Monash University.

The ANZTCR dataset was updated following a User Group meeting in October 2019 resulting in a more streamlined dataset with fewer items. A pilot to extract and import data directly and automatically from a health service database into the ANZTCR has been completed.

Twenty-eight ANZES members completed a clinician survey regarding the ANZTCR in late 2019. Over 70% were aware of the registry, with 75% having accessed the 2018 Annual Report.
