Abstract : The first year of the Project has been a development and design year. The goal of this year, as outlined in the Statement of Work (Proposal page 18) was to establish data collection procedures. The tasks outlined to accomplish this goal included: (1) negotiate data collection procedures and standardized forms with all mammography sites, (2) train cancer registrars to complete data forms for all breast tissue specimens, (3) establish computer database structures, key entry procedures and data management routines, (4) develop a liaison with New Hampshire State Registry staff for tumor registry data transfer, (5) develop a liaison with New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services for vial records transfer. We were successful in achieving the above stated goals. The specific details of our accomplishments are outlined in this report.
