You have been hired to create a data dictionary for a cancer/tumor registry. What types of data items would you need to collect? You will first want to conduct some research for background information on a cancer/tumor registry to get a clearer picture of its purpose. Good places to start your research include the National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA) website (https://www.ncra-usa.org/ (Links to an external site.)) and the Facility Oncology Registry Data Standards (FORDS) at https://www.facs.org/quality-programs/cancer/ncdb/registrymanuals/cocmanuals/fordsmanual (Links to an external site.)
Time to start creating your data dictionary…
Using either Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word to format your table:
You will create a table that is formatted with gridlines to separate your columns and rows.
Your table will need to be at least 6 columns (going across).
Your table needs a minimum of 15 data sets, so you need 16 rows. **NOTE: The first row is the name of each field/element.
The following are items that must be entered in the table:
A data item (Field Name) in column 1 for each row
The defined size of each data in column 2 for each row
The defined data type for each in column 3 for each row
The defined data format for each in column 4 for each row
The description/definition for each data element in column 5 for each row
An example of data you would collect on a patient for your chosen registry in column 6 for each row
Add color to your table to make your data dictionary unique.
Make sure your name is somewhere above or below your table
