Scope:Help on this term

This breast cancer data set is not mandated for collection but is recommended as best practice if breast cancer data are to be collected.

The data set would allow common, consistent and high quality breast cancer data to be collected by State and Territory cancer registries and collated nationally.

This data will help inform research, policy, planning and guideline development work in the breast cancer area.

Breast cancer may be used as a forerunner for other cancers in terms of establishing common data collections across cancer registries.

This data set includes 20 items, with the inclusion of five new standards and the addition of further detail to several existing standards.
