Cancer Care Spell

A Cancer Care Spell is an ACTIVITY GROUP.

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. It 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.
