8. Areas for Future Consideration
The Upper GI Cancer QPI Groups have not been able to identify sufficient evidence, or determine appropriate measurability specification, to address all areas felt to be of key importance in the treatment of Upper GI cancer, and therefore in improving the quality of care for patients affected by Upper GI cancer.
The following areas for future consideration have been raised across the lifetime of the Upper GI Cancer QPIs.
- Palliative treatment rates.
- Levels of early stage disease.
