Pan-Canadian oncology drug data: Minimum data set

Use this resource for the accurate and consistent coding of oncology drug data to support data collection and potential submission to CIHI

CIHI’s Oncology Drug Data Minimum Data Set (MDS) is intended to provide consistent, essential information to a broad range of partners and stakeholders who have key roles in the collection and use of oncology drug data.

The MDS can be used to:

  • Identify and describe the specific data elements used to gather information on oncology drugs.
  • Provide a rationale for including each data element.
  • Codify the values that categorize the data elements, where applicable.
  • Provide a guide for the use and collection of the data elements.

This MDS will be further refined based on feedback collected during its use.
