Why your views matter

National Cancer Quality Performance Indicators (QPIs) were developed to drive continuous quality improvement in cancer care across NHSScotland.  The Ovarian Cancer QPIs were first published in August 2013.  The QPIs are subject to formal review every 3 years, therefore the third cycle of review has now been undertaken following analysis of Year 9 national comparative data.

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. 

Wide clinical and public engagement is crucial to ensure wide inclusiveness of clinical colleagues across NHSScotland.  It is also vital to include the patients and the public as key stakeholders in this consultation to ensure the acceptability of the Quality Performance Indicators.
