Over the next month the CIBMTR will begin revising the next set of data collection forms, and we would like to ask for your help. The forms to be revised include:
2018 - Lymphoma Pre-HCT Disease Insert
2118 - Lymphoma Post-HCT Disease Insert
The goal of the revision process is to ensure the forms are capturing all currently relevant data, particularly where new definitions or tests have been accepted for use in the field. When reviewing the forms we also keep in mind the length of the form and burden to data professionals. There are 2 ways in which you can contribute:
- Submit suggestions for form changes. To do this, please review the forms, and send any suggested improvements to your CIBMTR CRC. This can include clarification around questions, adding new data points, or reformatting the way something is captured. All suggestions will be reviewed.
- Volunteer for a Form Revision Committee. Representation from data managers is a valuable part of the revision process. Participation on a committee includes reviewing the forms weekly via conference call, and determining the content changes needed. We expect that each form will require about 4-5 meetings to complete, but will adjust as needed.
Please submit suggestions to your CIBMTR CRC, or volunteer for a committee Friday, March 17th. If you have any questions, please contact Emilie Love (
