POGO Reports of Childhood Cancer Statistics
POGO monitors and publicly reports childhood cancer statistics in Ontario, including cancer incidence (new cases), mortality (deaths) and survival over time and by population. We do this work using data collected in POGONIS, POGO’s childhood cancer database, which is also linked to other databases managed by our partners in childhood cancer care. In addition, POGO provides statistics to hospital partners related to their case-mix, patient outcomes, health service utilization and workload to ensure high-quality care for children with cancer in Ontario. POGO data reports are important for enhancing data-driven quality improvement, one of the five strategic goals of POGO’s Childhood Cancer Care Plan: A Roadmap for Ontario 2018-2023.
