The third Quality in Care (QiC) Oncology programme launched today at the ABPI Annual Conference in London.

The programme, which recognises, rewards and shares good practice in cancer management, education and patient care, is now open for entry to teams and individuals working within the field of oncology.

Run by PMLiVE publisher the PMGroup, QiC Oncology comprises both an awards event and subsequent dissemination opportunities, and has the endorsement, support and active participation of key stakeholders, including BMS, Lilly, Novartis, NHS Improving Quality and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Joint working and collaboration are key to the QiC Programme and entries are invited from the NHS, industry, private sector and patient organisations to be reviewed by a panel of judges made up of nurses, commissioners, clinicians, patient representatives and leading industry professionals.

QiC Oncology has so far celebrated the achievements of more than 50 projects from healthcare organisations across the UK in a variety of categories reflecting priorities in cancer.

Visit QiC Connect for case studies of initiatives from previous years, each of which is improving the quality of care for people with cancer and recognising good health outcomes for patients.

Sean Duffy, National Clinical Director for Cancer, NHS England, said: “QiC Oncology provides an effective means of celebrating, and learning from, new ways of working which will help to drive up the quality of care.

“Last year's awards were the first time I was personally involved and I was impressed and inspired by the quality and breadth of the award winners and finalists. It demonstrated to me how those involved in day-to-day care of patients go even further to make real meaningful improvements in patients' experiences.”
