COST Action CA18218

Webinar on cancer burden methodologies

Driven by the impact of the Global Burden of Disease study, several countries have decided to establish a national burden of disease study. Central to any national burden of disease study is the establishment of a coherent framework for routinely quantifying the impact of diseases and risk factors in terms of DALYs.

In our next burden-eu webinar, you will hear two inspirational examples of national burden of disease studies and their use of national data to estimate the non-fatal burden of different types of cancers. You will learn about the methodological frameworks chosen by each study with their strengths and weaknesses.
