NBOCA Quality Improvement Plan
The aim of the NBOCA QI Plan is to involve all members of the multidisciplinary team managing patients with colorectal cancer, covering all areas of the pathway, from diagnosis and peri-operative care, to adjuvant and neoadjuvant oncological management, stage IV disease and end of life care.
NBOCA will be responsible for providing trusts/hospitals/MDTs with relevant metrics across the patient pathway.
