This programme aims to update pathologists with the latest changes in pathological cancer data collection.
COSD has changed since its initial inception in 2013. It is now far more clinically driven and aims to only ask questions that are either required to support cancer registration or useful for analysis (including supporting clinical audit). Over the past 18 months (and through two version control cycles), the important driver for COSD revision has been around removing duplication and enabling Trusts to collect good quality data. Pathology is an important part of this. Change from manual transcribing by MDT coordinators to automatic direct data feeds from pathologists is vital, as is ensuring that COSD remains clinically aligned with RCPath core datasets. Working together and ensuring accurate dataset alignment has never been more important.
