NCDB announcement: Publication of the STORE 2018

from NCDB

Over the years, the Commission on Cancer (CoC) has received valuable feedback to improve the data collected by the National Cancer Database (NCDB), which directly impacts the patients we all serve. The CoC acknowledges the magnitude of the 2018 changes, which seem overwhelming especially with the unexpected delay in the release of the tools and references that facilitate the task of abstraction including the Standards for Oncology Registry Entry (STORE) effective for cases diagnosed Jan. 1, 2018 and later. The CoC recognizes the challenges faced by our dedicated hospital registrars who continue to work tirelessly to ensure timeliness and accuracy of recording data; however, it is also part of the CoC’s commitment to provide clear and up-to-date instructions based on the collaborative effort of the experts involved in the development of the STORE. While all suggestions could not be implemented immediately with the current version of the STORE, significant changes have been made. For any other questions or concerns, please contact the NCDB at ncdb@facs.org.

The NCDB would not exist without the efforts of cancer registrars across the nation, and the CoC thanks the registrars at all CoC-accredited programs for their perseverance and patience during these difficult, but necessary, times of change. more
