Coming soon: NABCOP 2020 Annual Report

The National Audit of Breast Cancer in Older Patients (NABCOP) is gearing up to publish its 2020 Annual Report in June 2020.

It will present results from the prospective audit of women aged 50 years and over, diagnosed with breast cancer between 2014 and 2018, in England and Wales. Specifically, it will look at the impact of age on patterns of care, treatment received and outcomes.

This is a collaboration between the Association of Breast Surgery (ABS) and the Clinical Effectiveness Unit (CEU) of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS), and was commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) as part of the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme (NCAPOP).

Data collection open for organisational audit

All NHS Trusts and Health Boards in England and Wales that provide breast cancer services should participate in the NABCOP online organisational audit. This consists of an online organisational survey of breast cancer services and an online case vignette exercise of clinical management recommendations for breast cancer in older patients.

Data collection for the online organisational survey and case vignettes is now open. Instructions were sent by email to the breast cancer lead clinician or nominated point of contact at each provider from 22nd November 2016 onwards.

Both of these online activities must be completed by Tuesday 13th December 2016.

If you have any queries about the organisational audit, please let us know.
