The following protocols are based on the 2010 AJCC/UICC 7th edition Cancer Staging Manual where applicable.
The guides, forms and request information sheets are provided for educational purposes and to support the implementation of structured pathology reporting of cancer.
Guides are designed to be an 'aide de memoire' when reporting and contain a condensed version of the standards and guidelines from the protocol. 'Help' in the form of the relevant sections from the protocol is available by clicking on the hyperlinked standard or guideline number. The guides are the easiest way of accessing the wealth of information in the protocol. (You will need an active internet connection to view the information.)
Forms are designed to provide a paper version of the checklist in Chapter 6 of the protocol, with response values and spaces for notes.
Request Information sheets are designed to provide guidance for clinicians requesting surgical pathology for specific cancers describing the type of information required by the pathologist to adequately assess the specimen.
Typists templates are intended to faciliate data entry of dictated structured reports. These should not be used for implementation purposes.
Note: Version updates to the protocols V1.2, V1.3 etc represent minor formatting updates only and do not substantially change the content of the protocol in any way.
