Building a Cancer Survival Index

In 2010, ICON members Bernard Rachet and Manuela Quaresma were part of a team commissioned to build and deliver a tool to measure the effectiveness of UK cancer services. This tool, named the cancer survival index, condenses large streams of cancer data into a single output and the methods used to create the index have now been published in Cancer Epidemiology as an open-source guide to creating your own cancer survival index.
