Scope:Help on this term

The Bowel cancer diagnosed cluster comprises a set of standardised data definitions used for monitoring people that have received a bowel cancer diagnosis.

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 National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.
