Cancer Care Spell
A Cancer Care Spell is an ACTIVITY GROUP.
A Cancer Care Spell is the period of time during which a PATIENT who has been diagnosed as suffering from a single site Primary Cancer or, in the case of particular skin cancers, one or more Lesions may receive care.
The Cancer Care Spell:
- starts on the date of the REFERRAL REQUEST from any source to a specialist team
- ends when the PATIENT dies.
A recurrence of the original Primary Cancer at a secondary site is part of the same Cancer Care Spell.
If a PATIENT has another Primary Cancer this will be a new Cancer Care Spell.
The Cancer Care Spell may only involve diagnostic procedures leading to a diagnosis, for example in cases where the PATIENT refuses treatment, or it may include treatment and follow-up.
