Draft International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting (ICCR) dataset for review

Dear COGNO Members,
The following is circulated on behalf of Meagan Judge, Project Manager Structured Pathology Reporting of Cancer, RCPA. Please contact Meagan directly if you have any queries.
I am writing to invite you to review and provide comment on the following draft dataset for the pathology reporting of Tumours of the Central Nervous System developed by the International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting (ICCR). The dataset is split into three sections:
  • Histological assessment of CNS specimens
  • Molecular information for CNS specimens
  • Final integrated report/diagnosis for CNS specimens
The ICCR has been formed to develop common, internationally standardised and evidence-based cancer datasets for surgical pathology specimens. Using the best international approaches, and leveraging the knowledge and experience of world–leading pathologists, the ICCR aims to ensure that all cancer reports, will be of the same high quality; ensuring completeness, consistency, clarity, conciseness and above all, clinical utility.

The ICCR has published 17 cancer datasets to date. These datasets are posted to: http://www.iccr-cancer.org/datasets

Your comment on the draft dataset is invited. The draft dataset is posted to: http://www.iccr-cancer.org/datasets/datasets-under-consultation

The documents will be available for comment until Friday 4th May 2018. To provide feedback on the draft dataset, email any comments directly to Datasets@iccr-cancer.org. Please include your name and country together with your comments. In regard to your comments or suggested changes, please be as specific as possible, including any relevant background information and supporting evidence, including which section/element of the dataset that your comments pertain to. We understand there are different areas of expertise and we welcome all comments and feedback on these draft datasets from all specialists in Pathology.  It would be greatly appreciated if you disseminate this notification to any other interested parties.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me on the details below or Fleur Webster, ICCR Project Manager at fleur_webster@hotmail.com.
