Development of national cancer care multi-disciplinary team key performance indicators (2015)

Development of national cancer care multi-disciplinary team key performance indicators (2015)

HealthConsult was commissioned by Cancer Australia to prepare a scoping paper with recommendations for the development of national cancer care multi-disciplinary team (MDT) key performance indicators (KPIs) for inclusion in the National Cancer Control Indicators (NCCI) framework. An international literature search was conducted on grey and published papers that provide information on cancer care MDT indicators. State and territory based health department websites were visited along with national and international cancer organisations. Additionally, consultations were undertaken with key informants to get a better understanding of current Australian data collections around MDTs, so recommendations for indicators could be based on an understanding of actual practice. The project commenced in March 2015 and was completed in July 2015.
