The OECI is very proud to present the new Manual version 3.0 (see attachment to this news item). In the Manual you will find a detailed description of the Accreditation & Designation process in 10 steps. Also you will find a description of the activities of the specific roles in the A&D process. The Qualitative Standards and Quantitative questionnaire, including a list with Requested documents which need to be translated into English, are also part of the Manual.
As from the 1st of January 2020 it is only possible to apply
for the OECI A&D Programme based upon the standards in Manual 3.0 via the e-tool (oeci.exata.nl
). New applicants can apply via oeci.eu/accreditation
(then go to the Application form via How to Apply in the Menu).
A&D Programme is widely recognised as the only cancer accreditation
programme which includes cancer centres/institutes
in almost every country in Europe. It is also the only cancer quality programme
whose standards have been
accredited by the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua).
Manual 3.0 is the result of a successful collaboration among the A&D
Programme, OECI Members, centres/institutes in the A &D Programme, and
auditors involved in the peer review process. It builds on OECI’s 11
successful years of experience in cancer quality systems in Europe.
Oberst, Chair of the A&D Board says:
“We thank all the experts,
organisations and cancer
centres/institutes who have provided insight and critique of the Standards and
quantitative measures proposed in
this Manual 3.0. Special thanks go to external representatives of European
Cancer Organisations involved in
care, research and education, namely EORTC, EONS, EACS, ECCO, ESSO, ESTRO,
ESMO, Cancer Core Europe
and Cancer Prevention Europe who contributed to the discussions on the revision
of the Manual.
special thanks to those organisations representing cancer patients and their
caregivers – who are the real goal
and purpose of the improvements in cancer diagnosis, research and treatment
envisaged by these Standards -
namely the European Cancer Leagues, and the European Cancer Patient Coalition.
Their input has resulted in
a set of Standards which set probably the highest bar of patient-centred cancer
care in the world”.
