CDRC has developed two separate Cancer Templates, a Cancer Screening Summary Template and a Cancer Care Template which provides an over of the patient’s cancer and main forms of treatment.
Cancer Screening Summary Template
The Screening Summary template displays the most recent information regarding the major screening programmes with links to more detailed information.
It is possible to quickly record a verbal invitation using this template.
Cancer Care Template
The Home Page provides an overview of patient’s cancer and main forms of treatment.
A new cancer diagnosis can be added using the New Cancer Diagnosis button giving the user the option to record the diagnosis as a problem, summary or simple Read code entry.
The most recent cancer care review code is displayed along with the current QoF performance status. Previous and current cancer treatment is shown.
A link is available to create a cancer support services letter to send or give to the patient.
Cancer Care Review Page
This page facilitates a cancer care review. There is a link to the standard CDRC lifestyle issues template (weight, alcohol, smoking etc.).
The Complete Cancer Care Review button opens a questionnaire that prompts users to complete information about the main issues for cancer patients (second image below). This information is then displayed on the page. It can be updated by right clicking on the information and choosing Copy Questionnaire.
