Scope of the European Quality Assurance scheme for Breast Cancer Services

Image
The European QA scheme's scope (The Scope) represented the first output of the development process of the European QA scheme. This document proposes the care processes, care services and quality dimensions that the European QA scheme will and will not cover. Via a public call, stakeholders and individual citizens were invited to provide their feedback on The Scope.  The call was open from 17 February to 9 March 2016 and an online questionnaire via the EU Survey platform on the ECIBC web hub was made available.

Results

The JRC received a total of 63 valid responses from 15 individuals (24% of total valid responses) and 48 organisations (76%). Individuals and organisations from 23 out of 28 EU Member States (82%) contributed to this exercise.

During a meeting held in Varese (Italy) in March 2016, the QASDG members discussed how the results of the call for feedback should be integrated into The Scope. Decisions taken during that meeting were recorded in the meeting’s minutes and The Scope was modified accordingly. The final version of The Scope was approved by the QASDG on 16 May, 2016 and is now made publicly available together with the Report of the Call for feedback*.

*One communication and request was received after the deadline for the call and it is openly available here
