    Dear NAACCR Members,

    An invited review article we recently submitted titled "Unlocking the Potential of Population-Based Cancer Registries" has been published online in advance of publication in Cancer. The article addresses the following topics:
    1. CHANGES IN THE QUANTITY AND QUALITY OF CENTRAL CANCER REGISTRIES OVER THE THE LAST SEVERAL DECADES
    2. USING THE POPULATION-BASED CANCER REGISTRY AS A SAMPLE FRAME
    3. USING THE POPULATION-BASED CANCER REGISTRY FOR RAPID CASE ASCERTAINMENT
    4. USING THE POPULATION-BASED CANCER REGISTRY AS A POPULATION-BASED VIRTUAL TISSUE REPOSITORY (VTR)
    5. USING THE POPULATION-BASED CANCER REGISTRY TO GUIDE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF EVIDENCE-BASED CANCER CONTROL INTERVENTIONS AND TO MEASURE CHANGES IN THE CANCER BURDEN AFTER THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THESE INTERVENTIONS
    The article has been published as "open access" and  should be of interest to individuals working in central cancer registries as well as researchers who use population-based cancer registry data. You may download a copy for free at https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cncr.32355 .
