NETS Module 4: Validating Data with Text
The NPCR Education and Training Series (NETS) is a series of educational tools for state trainers to support central cancer registries in their role of providing education to staff and reporters. For more information about how you may use the NETS modules, please see Guidelines for Using the NETS Modules.
Validating Data with Text [PDF-2.1MB] provides instructions for reporters on the importance of text to validate coded data, how to record text, and what text to include. The exercises help students determine necessary text.
Case Studies and Exercise Worksheets
The exercises that follow are taken from actual medical charts that have been de-identified to protect patient privacy and are used as part of the learning process. Drug names are trademarked and listed as they actually appear in their medical records.
