Singapore Cancer Registry 50th Anniversary Monograph (1968 – 2017)
Over the last fifty years, the Singapore Cancer Registry (SCR) has collated data on all cancers contributed by the healthcare professionals in Singapore. It has become an invaluable resource for monitoring cancer trends, conducting clinical research, guiding health policy and maximising the efficient allocation of resources. In order to mark this event, SCR has published a commemorative monograph, reporting on fifty years of cancer incidence, mortality and survival in Singapore, dedicated to its founder, the late Professor K. Shanmugaratnam.
The 50th Anniversary Monograph covers data from 1968 to 2017, and comprises of two books: -
- Book 1: includes a tribute to Professor K. Shanmugaratnam, a chapter on the evolving trends in cancer classification (contributed by Prof Tan Puay Hoon and Dr Ian Cree), and key cancer trends in Singapore over the past fifty years.
- Book 2: compiles the appendices with detailed breakdown for key trends.
