Oncology

Regimen-specific consent forms for many tumour types have been published on the Cancer Research UK website, more tumour-site and regimen specific and generic forms now released, including, as below:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Upper Gastrointestinal cancer (OG, HPB and GIST)
  • Gynaecology cancers
  • Head & Neck cancers
  • Lung cancer
  • Melanoma skin cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Urology cancers (bladder and prostate)
  • Supportive therapies

SACT consent forms are reviewed on a rolling basis, however of particular note is the recent update (May 2020) of all the breast-specific forms, to which many changes have been made. There are now 52 forms in total: 17 new and 2 archived.  The list was compiled with support from the UKBCG (UK Breast Cancer Group).  Please circulate to your breast oncology teams and infrastructure. 

Many of the new forms contain a combination of drugs so that in most instances only one consent form needs to be completed.

Changes have also been made to the individual regimen specific consent forms, in response to updated information or clinicians request for clarity.
