The CCR Patient Review page is designed for use during a clinic visit, giving easy-to-find access to the kind of information a medical provider might need during a clinic visit but also providing for easy data entry into CCR of information that might typically be gathered during a clinic visit. The idea is that this will both improve the quality and efficiency of clinic visits while helping to facilitate the timely entry of relevant information into CCR to better support both clinical and research uses of the database. Among data which could be entered in this fashion are treatment protocols assigned to a patient, diagnoses and staging results. For instructions on how to add staging from the regular CCR patient detail window, see Entering Staging Manually for a Cancer Diagnosis.

To add a diagnosis to a patient record from the CCR Patient Review page:

1. Open the Diagnosis window for the diagnosis associated with the staging — see Viewing/Editing a Diagnosis Record for instructions on how to do this.

The diagnosis needs to already be saved into the patient record and needs to be opened for editing. If you need to create the diagnosis record, do so and save it without any staging information — see Adding a Diagnosis Record to a Patient — then reopen it for editing. Until you do this, you will not be able to add any staging information to the diagnosis.

2. Click on the Add Stage button near the top of the page. Show me the Add Stage button. The Stage window will open.

3. Enter the staging information on the Stage window. For a description of the window and the various fields available to enter information, see The Stage Window.

Click the Save button to save the staging information and add it to the patient record. Both the Stage and Diagnosis windows will close and the newly entered staging information will be added to the patient record.

To close the window without adding a diagnosis to the patient record, click the Cancel button. The window will close without saving any of your changes.

As with staging records entered using the patient detail window, the staging record you enter is associated with your cancer group as specified in your session purpose. Users from other cancer groups viewing the patient record will not see the staging record in the grid unless they have marked the Show Diagnoses And Stages For All Cancer Groups checkbox above the Diagnosis grid on the patient detail window — see The Overview Tab (Patient Detail Window).
