Cancer Staging Changes

Friday, January 23, 2009 at 1:48:39 PM

American College of Surgeons cancer staging standards are being revised, and physicians will now be asked through a series of prompts to do staging prior to treatment. Treatment should be offered to the patient based on established guidelines. The stage may need to be revised as more information is gained. All statistics collected by ACOS will be based on these pre-treatment stages and treatments and should lead to better outcomes-based research. Contact Bobbie Speight at 763-6098 for more information.
