Collection Methods
Queensland Cancer Registry (QCR):
Queensland Cancer Registry currently requires dates to be transmitted in DDMMCCYY format. QCR obtains death information from the Registrar General and other sources such as Hospitals and nursing homes where the death is on site.  

Queensland Perinatal Data Collection (QPDC):
DSU obtain Perinatal death information from the Medical Certificate of Cause of Perinatal Death (Form T) from the Registrar General.
Comment
Some Queensland Health information systems restrict date storage to CCYYMMDD format e.g. Oracle systems.
