The Lymphoma and Related Diseases Registry (LaRDR) is an Australasian initiative to improve the treatment and outcomes of patients with lymphoma.
The LaRDR is managed by Monash University’s School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, through the Transfusion Research Unit, which manages a number of other clinical registries for important blood disorders.
The registry will include all new cases of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas at registered hospital sites. National representative data on diagnosis and treatment will be collected, allowing the LaRDR team to
- Understand access to care
- Monitor trends in practice, outcomes and survival
- Explore variation in factors that influence outcomes including survival and quality of life
- Benchmark outcomes nationally and internationally
- Act as a resource for clinical trials
