Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Data Set Specification|
|DSS type:||Data Element Cluster|
The Bowel cancer screening test cluster comprises a set of standardised data definitions used for monitoring the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP). This cluster includes information on people who participated in the NBCSP and undertook a disease screening test.
This metadata set is not mandated for collection, i.e. it reflects best practice when collecting data in relation to bowel screening rather than a nationally mandated set of data items that must be provided.
It is intended to be used by the National Cancer Screening Register. It can also be used by a wider range of health and health-related professionals who collect and/or use the data in relation to the NBCSP.
Collection and usage attributes
Persons who either have participated or will be participating in bowel cancer screening programs.
