Dr. Jason Pole Dr. Jason Pole on the Power of Population-based Research
POGO's childhood cancer database (POGONIS) has been gathering and analyzing information on pediatric cancer cases in Ontario since the early 1980s. This has allowed us to observe the population, know if certain cancers are increasing in incidence, monitor treatment, follow survival and understand how these things change over time.

The data collected allows us to perform what is called population-based research. This type of study design looks at populations as a whole, in POGO's case, all children with cancer in Ontario, and helps us to ask and answer questions where outcomes are small and need to be studied on a large scale.
