Standards & Accreditation - Quality Cancer Care

Standards help systems for cancer care delivery deliver to higher levels and can help to enshrine good governance, safety and quality.

The European Cancer Organisation's Quality Cancer Care Network therefore encourages familiarisation and adoption by health systems, cancer centres and practitioners of the range of leading standards produced by professional and scientific societies.

To quality assure that standards are indeed being applied, a range of independent  and internationally available accreditation systems are also in place, and are recommended to adopted where possible.
