The list oh health indicators proposed by EUROCHIP-1

The discussion on the list of indicators was organized mainly following the natural history of the disease, with specific cancer sites used as a proxy of particular phases of the disease and the type of factor proposed by the ECHI project.

The indicators are proposed by the following three axes of classification:
1. Major axis of classification: the natural history of cancer
a. Prevention domain: Causes & Risk factors, Preclinical disease
b. Occurrence domain: Symptoms-Diagnosis-Treatment
c. Outcome domain: Clinical follow-up, Recurrences, Rescue treatments, Palliation, Death

2. Axis correspondent to the recommended ECHI classification of health indicators:
a. Demographic and socio-economic factors
b. Health determinants
c. Morbidity/general health status/mortality
d. Health system performance, health care resources
e. Health expenditure

3. The other axis is the type of cancer for which indicators are required:
a. All cancers combined without non melanoma skin cancers for relevance with
b. Major cancers: Lung, Breast, Colorectal, Prostate
c. Other major cancers: Stomach, Head and neck-larynx, oropharynx, Melanoma
d. Other cancers: Kaposi, Mesothelioma, Testis, Haematopoietic malignancies, All childhood tumors, Cervix
