The main objective of REDECAN is to strengthen the role of the Spanish population cancer registries and the Spanish Registry of Childhood Tumors (RETI) as one of the main elements of the information system on cancer in Spain.
The purpose is to contribute to the general objective of cancer surveillance and control in Spain, providing a continuous and organized framework for the activities of the Spanish population-based cancer registries and the RETI.
The work at Redecan is directed by the Board of Directors, which is made up of a representative from each of the cancer registries (preferably with medical, epidemiological and statistical training) as full members. The meetings of the Board of Directors are also attended by members of other registries in the process of consolidation as observer members. They meet periodically, establish the rules of operation of the Network and make timely decisions on the different issues.
In addition, Redecan has established a series of working groups to advance the objectives of the Network.
