Upcoming PC4 lecture- The English National Cancer Diagnosis Audit 2016/7: process and key findings with Prof Greg Rubin

The recently completed English National Cancer Diagnosis Audit is unique in having collected and linked cancer registry and primary care referral data for a large and population-based cohort of 17000 cancer patients. The audit aims to further understand the patient pathway from first presentation to diagnosis and to highlight where improvements can be made in order to shorten the diagnostic interval.  It also provides a baseline for future audits to assess the impact of the 2015 NICE guidelines on the recognition and referral of patients with a suspicion of cancer. In this seminar Greg will discuss the key methodological aspects of this project and its principal findings. He will also touch upon the way the Royal College of General practitioners and the cancer charities are promoting practice quality improvement initiatives that respond to the findings.
