Who we are
The Upper Gastrointestinal Cancer Registry (UGICR) is a clinical quality registry, that collects information about the diagnosis, treatment and outcomes of individuals with upper gastrointestinal cancer. The registry is managed by the Cancer Research Program, part of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Monash University.
The UGICR is designed to describe patterns of care following diagnosis of primary cancers of the pancreas, oesophagus, stomach, liver, and biliary system. The aim of the registry is to identify variation in treatment and outcomes of patients with upper gastrointestinal cancers, with a view to improve patient outcomes and quality of care.
By participating in the registry, and allowing information about your diagnosis, treatment and health outcomes to be collected by the UGICR, you are contributing to the improvement of the quality of care and outcomes for patients diagnosed with upper gastrointestinal cancers in the future.
In 2021, more than 12,000 Australians will be diagnosed with cancers of the pancreas, oesophagus, stomach, biliary system and liver.
