Presentation developed by Collaborative Staging Steering Committee
American Joint Committee on Cancer firstname.lastname@example.org
As you know, collaborative staging includes a set of data items collected and then used to derive AJCC T, N, M, and stage group as well as summary stage 1977 and 2000. During this presentation we will discuss collaborative staging for colon and rectum. We will only discuss the collaborative staging data items required for submission to NPCR. For colon those are CS extension, CS lymph nodes, and CS mets at dx.
