We have been contacted by West of Scotland Cancer Network for an enquiry of undertaking a focus group on the subject of the revised Lung Cancer Cancer Quality Performance Indicators (QPIs).
“These QPIs have been developed collaboratively with the three Regional Cancer Networks, Information Services Division (ISD), and Healthcare Improvement Scotland.
Under the auspices of the Scottish Cancer Taskforce, National Cancer Quality Performance Indicators (QPIs) were developed to drive continuous quality improvement in cancer care across NHSScotland. In December 2012, Lung Cancer QPIs were published, and following 3 years of national comparative data, these have now been subject to formal review. In order to ensure success of the National Cancer QPIs in driving quality improvement it is critical that QPIs continue to be clinically relevant and focus on areas which will result in improvements to the quality of patient care.
During this period comments will be invited from clinical and managerial staff, patients and carers affected by lung cancer and the wider public in order to finalise these updated QPIs ahead of publication in early 2017.
They are looking for patients and carers to get together for a meeting on this on Friday 16th December , 1-2pm, at Roy Castle Glasgow Office– 98 Holm Street, Glasgow, G2 6SY.
If this is something that would interest you please get in touch ASAP so I can inform them of numbers.
The updated version of the Lung Cancer Quality Performance Indicators can be found on the Scottish Government Consultation Hub and this can be accessed at:
All the best
