BenchCan is funded by the European Commission's enchmarking comprehensive cancer care that provides interdisciplinary treatment for patients, and yield examples of best practice in comprehensive cancer care (BenchCan). bThe research project was carried out between May 2013 to June 2016, closed project.
- BenchCan Objectives
The general objective of BenchCan is to benchmark comprehensive cancer care & yield best practice examples in a way that contributes to improving the quality of interdisciplinary patient treatment.
The BenchCan project developed a tool for benchmarking comprehensive cancer care and, in the process, revealed positive examples that can lead to improvements in the quality of interdisciplinary treatment. The project piloted its benchmarking tool at 11 sites in 3 geographic EU clusters. A benchmarking exercise was conducted at each site, and this work was reviewed by an external group. Areas for improvement were highlighted and action plans were adopted. The results were published in a benchmarking manual that was made available through open access.
- ECPC's Role
As the largest cancer patients' organisation in Europe, ECPC has been invited to oversee the BenchCan work, providing horizontal support to the project, ensuring that the patients' perspective is overall respected throught the diffrent work packages.
