All of the algorithms have been developed by Julia Hippisley-Cox and Carol Coupland and are based on routinely collected data from many thousands of GPs across the country who have freely contributed data to the QResearch database for medical research.
This suite of QCancer® tools has been developed for the UK population, and is intended for use in the UK.
