CCARM - The NC CCR Reporting Manual

Cancer Collection and Reporting Manual (CCARM) - 2022 (6.7 MB PDF)
The Cancer Collection and Reporting Manual (CCARM) defines the requirements for reporting to the NC CCR including cases required to be reported, timelines for reporting and specific data items and coding instructions required to describe the cancer. Data reporters are required to follow the guidelines contained in this document and must apply the coding instructions for each data item when abstracting cases. These reporting requirements follow national data standards to ensure the uniform description and reporting of neoplastic diseases. Proper classification is essential for clinicians and researchers to evaluate results of management and to serve as the standard for reporting on the incidence and outcome of cancer to the healthcare community and the public.
