Cancer Services Performance Indicator (CSPI) audit

This DHHS-initiated audit of hospital medical records allows us to see how we are tracking against indicators of high quality care. This graph shows the summary results for a 698 record audit of patients who were diagnosed and treated in 2017 in NEMICS health services.

The Staging, ECOG in MDM form and prospective MDM were measured only on the records where there was an MDM (n = 587).
The red bar indicates to target for each indicator.

The indicators:

MDM - Evidence of multidisciplinary team recommendations
Stage - Evidence of cancer staging in the multidisciplinary team recommendations
ECOG - Evidence of patient performance status in the multidisciplinary team recommendations
GP communication - Evidence of communication of initial treatment plan to patient's GP within 2 weeks
Supportive care - Evidence of supportive care screening
Prospective MDM     MDM occurs before the date of first treatment admission
