National Gynae-Oncology Registry

Purpose / aims: NGOR is a new clinical quality registry for gynaecological cancers, which is currently piloting the first module, an ovarian cancer registry. Other modules are planned in the future for cancers of the cervix, uterus, vulva, vagina and other gynaecological malignancies. The aim of the registry is to provide benchmarked reports to clinicians on agreed indicators of quality of care, in order to facilitate improvements in care and patient outcomes.
Population captured: The pilot of the ovarian cancer module captures all newly diagnosed patients with ovarian, tubal and peritoneal (OTP) cancers being treated at several participating hospitals in Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania. The registry plans to expand nationally and to roll out other modules in the future.
Outcomes collected:
  • Completeness of disease staging
