With the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) release in 2016 of the AJCC Cancer Staging Manual, 8th edition, extensive modifications to the CAP cancer protocols are required to allow pathologists to report the new 8th edition staging starting January 1, 2018. Faculty presented the vision, mission, and high concepts behind the AJCC 8th edition staging design. Additionally, faculty provided an overview of the ways that the CAP is developing design and content modifications to the CAP cancer protocols and electronic Cancer Checklists (eCCs) to allow for changing staging elements, as well as adding additional guidance for the usage of the protocols for patient care and for accreditation purposes.
This CAP webinar was originally presented on December 14, 2017. The recorded webinar is now available between February 13, 2018, and February 12, 2020, at 12:00 AM (ET).
