Breast Cancer Clinical Quality Performance Indicators Engagement Document.

Document explaining the process of, and inviting engagement on, revision of the breast cancer QPIs.

9. Areas for Future Consideration

The Breast Cancer QPI Groups have not been able to identify sufficient

evidence, or determine appropriate measurability specifications, to address all areas felt to

be of key importance in the treatment of breast cancer, and therefore in improving

the quality of care for patients affected by breast cancer.

The following areas for future consideration have been raised across the lifetime of the Breast Cancer QPIs:

  • Conservation rates for more extensive cancers
  • Optimum number of nodes for accurate axillary staging
  • Management of the Axilla
  • Cardiac Sparing Radiotherapy
