Guide for use:Help on this term

Record the date that cancer staging is completed. This date should be equal to the date that the latest pathological or clinical testing (including imaging) required to determine staging occurred. Should the staging be based on surgical findings, the date should be equal to the date of the relevant surgery.

As cancer staging items within the cancer data set specifications relate to stage at diagnosis, should the date of staging not be available this item should default to being equal to the date of diagnosis.

This data item should be recorded with any cancer staging scheme that is recorded for a patient.

Collection methods:Help on this termCollect from patient medical records.
