This project was designed to accredit institutions in Brazil in the conduct of clinical trials. For more information about this project, contact:

Thematic Workshops

The purpose of these workshops is to identify obstacles to effective cancer control - and potential solutions - in selected thematic areas of relevance to specific countries or regions. Two such workshops were held in Tanzania in 2007 and 2009 to discuss challenges and to propose potential solutions related to cancer control in East Africa. A workshop that focused on breast cancer in the Eastern Mediterranean Region of the WHO was held in Cairo, Egypt in 2008.

Webinars for e-Learning

INCTR provided webinars for the European School of Oncology (ESO) in September, 2011.  The first was “Cancer in Developing Countries” which was presented by Dr. Simon Sutcliffe, President of Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration (TWCC)/INCT Canada with Dr. Ian Magrath, President of INCTR, serving as the discussant.  The second webinar was “Palliative Care in India”.  This was presented by Dr. Gayatri Palat, Director of INCTR’s Palliative Access (PAX) program with Dr. Fraser Black (co-Director of PAX) serving as the discussant.  Both webinars remained on the ESO web site for 6 months following these sessions.

Cataloguing the Evidence and Undertaking Systematic Review

In 2008, INCTR began working with partners in Egypt on a pilot project that used adapted Cochrane methodology to build a bibliographic register of published papers relevant to developing cancer control in a low or middle income country. This was supported by a two-year grant from the European School of Oncology.  INCTR’s UK Office and INCTR Egypt collaborated with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Cairo to build a model database listing the research on five selected areas of cancer (breast cancer, bladder cancer, lymphomas, childhood malignancies and cancer palliative care) relevant to the population of Egypt that had been published between the years 2000 and 2008. The results of the project were reported at the 5th International Conference of Scientific Research and Its Applications (Cairo University 22-24 December 2009) and the completed database was uploaded to the web site of Cairo University in 2010.

Open Educational Resources for Cancer (OERC)
