|Registration status:||Health, Candidate 14/10/2021|
|DSS type:||Data Element Cluster|
The Bowel cancer diagnostic assessment 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 received a positive screening result and then had a cancer diagnostic assessment.
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 in or will be participating in bowel cancer screening programs and who have answered yes in relation to having undergone a cancer diagnostic assessment.
