Trusts should ensure that patients are provided with the relevant information about cancer registration at an appropriate time after a cancer diagnosis.
NCRAS has produced guidance to help support Trusts in increasing awareness of cancer registration to patients and healthcare professionals, and to communicate this information effectively.
The guidance document explains what staff should know about cancer registration, what Trusts should be doing to ensure they comply with cancer data guidelines, and other ways in which awareness about cancer registration can be increased.
A cancer registration dissemination form is also available and should be completed by someone responsible for distributing information about cancer registration within their Trust.
A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document about cancer registration is also available.
