Reducing Variations in Care

A key to improving cancer survival is consistent implementation of evidence based care. Hume RICS participates in a number of audit activities conducted at both local and state levels.

Mechanisms such as clinical audit, peer review and benchmarking are used to monitor the quality of our services, drive improvements in cancer care and reduce unwanted variations in care.

Developing our multidisciplinary teams, strengthening links to metropolitan cancer care providers and participating in a number of inter-ICS activities are all important steps to ensuring people affected by cancer in the Hume region have access to best practice care.
