SEER Abstract Addendum Generator for 2014+ Cases Abstracted under Collaborative Stage version 0205 (CS v0205)
Version 4.0 - Released December 6, 2013

While the ideal situation is that all 2014+ cases are abstracted into Collaborative Stage version 0205 software, some facilities/registries may need to abstract 2014+ cases before their abstracting software can be updated to CS v0205. This tool lists the Collaborative Stage (CS) fields and space to abstract the information needed for CS v0205. You must have Word 2003 or later on your computer to run this tool.

Based on the site and histology (and if needed CS Site-Specific Factor 25 discriminator) entered by the user, the correct schema will be chosen. Clicking the “Generate Table” button will create a table within the program interface where codes and rationale/documentation can be entered. The table will contain a listing of new fields and CS fields including the names of all of the CS site-specific factors for this schema. The addendum lists all of the site-specific factors since different facilities and standard setters have different requirements. Information on required site-specific factors and on specific fields and codes for each schema can be found on the Collaborative Stage Data Collection Web siteExternal Web Site Policy. Information on required site-specific factors can be found on the “Coding Instructions” tab. Information on specific fields and codes for each schema can be found on the “Schema” tab.

Directions for Use

See the ‘Help’ option on the top left of the SEER Abstract Addendum Generator. Please read before using the application since it is slightly different than previous versions.

Options

This application can be used in Word or HTML. The blank or completed addendum can be saved in either format or printed. Warning: please save the file before starting a new addendum and pressing the ‘Generate table’ button.

Files

This tool saves the addendum in Word or HTML format. This tool does NOT manage the files that you create. You must create an ID or number such as accession number, suspense number, etc., to link this addendum to the abstract. There is an ID field at the top of the addendum to notate the information needed to link with your abstract. When you save the addendum, the unique filename you give it should also reflect this link to the abstract.
