Guide for use:

Record the earliest date that a late effect related to cancer and/or cancer treatment is identified. This may be the first date that it is recognised by a person with cancer or the first date that the late effect is confirmed by a medical practitioner (general practitioner or specialist), whichever is earliest. This should be recorded for each late effect experienced by the person with cancer.

This does not include issues relating to the recurrence of cancer or progression of the disease. Late effects are as a result of the treatment, the disease process, or both. Examples of late effects relating to cancer are infertility, hyperthyroidism, scoliosis, cognitive impairment and congestive heart failure.
Collection methods:Collect this from patient medical records.
