I can't see the paper, but I am guessing this is a set of regular
survival models, then shrinkage toward the mean, i.e. simple
calculations shrinking individual estimates toward the grand mean
using smoothing over space and tying weights to estimated variability
in estimates.  Try googling "empirical bayes shrinkage local area
estimation" for more, e.g.,

From what i know, a website by Paul dickman contains code for estimating and modeling relative survival, but no bayesian relative surival. The paper, Spatial variation in prostate cancer survival in the Northern and Yorkshire region of England using Bayesian relative survival smoothing,  seems to use poisson model for estimation and modelling.
