NABCOP 2022 Annual Report – published!

The National Audit of Breast Cancer in Older Patients (NABCOP) has published its 2022 Annual Report on May 12th 2022.

It presents results from the prospective audit of women aged 50 years and over, diagnosed with breast cancer between 1 January 2014 and 31 December 2020, in England and Wales. Specifically, it looks 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).

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