Cancer care improvement
We support improvements in the quality of cancer care by:
- updating existing SIGN guidelines to ensure they reflect
- developing new guidelines for cancers
where there is little or no existing advice and guidance on best
- facilitating the development of quality
performance indicators (QPIs) to support the work of the National
Cancer Quality Steering Group
- working collaboratively with ISD and the
Regional Cancer Networks to develop a quality assurance and
governance framework that will allow review of cancer services at
local, regional and national level.
These activities allow us to support
boards in delivering safe and effective cancer services, and
provide a mechanism to assure the public that this is so.
