Excellence in DAD Abstracting for Fiscal 2006-2007 - Self Learning Program  Core

Are your coders collecting consistent and accurate data on the DAD abstract as per CIHI abstracting guidelines?

The primary objective of this self-learning workbook (PDF format) is to ensure the accuracy of data collection in the DAD database.

This workbook is derived from the Promoting Excellence in DAD Abstracting Workshop, delivered across the country from September to December 2005. The "Million $$ Questions" module contained commonly asked questions from our clients. The Excellence in DAD Abstracting for Fiscal 2006-2007 booklet builds upon the questions and answers in the previous workshop. The answers have been updated and many new questions added. This is an excellent resource book for your coders.

No. Regardless of the language in which the publication itself is available, the series screen provides a general description of the publications in that series and, for each edition, gives you the option of choosing the language and the media type (for example, paper or PDF) of the publication that you want. CIHI often publishes reports in both English and French, though there is sometimes a delay between the publication of the English version and the availablility of the French version. The series information will always be available in both English and French, even if the report itself is only available in one language.
