Module III. Intermediate 

This continues the instruction for learning about AJCC staging.  This will proceed with the rules for using the correct classification and assigning all of the elements that make up the AJCC stage.  This will cover the rules for more complex cases, encompassing some of the nuances for all of these topics and provide a foundation for the subsequent advanced module.

Lesson 15. Classifications

Identify the more complex rules for the classifications used in the cancer registry.

Identify the more complex rules for assigning the T category.  This includes how they differ based on the classification.

Identify the more complex rules for assigning the N category.  This includes how they differ based on the classification.

Identify the more complex rules for assigning the M category.  This includes how they differ based on the classification.

Identify the more complex rules for assigning the stage group based on the T, N, and M categories.  This includes the different stage group complex choices based on the classification.

Fifteen PowerPoint scenarios that illustrate common staging issues are available.  These consist of five anatomic sites with 3 scenarios for each site.  These are in the familiar cancer conference format.  The clinical and pathologic stages are discussed along with the rationale for the correct answer.  This will reinforce the information taught in this module.
