Victorian Cancer Performance Indicators

The Victorian Cancer Performance Indicator program was established to measure progress with the implementation of Victorian Government cancer reform policy in the areas of multidisciplinary care (MDC), supportive care and coordination of care. 

A range of regional health services participate in the bi-annual audit. Results can be found here

BSWRICS is required to report on five key indicators:

  1. Documented evidence of multidisciplinary team recommendations
  2. Documented evidence of disease staging in multidisciplinary team recommendations
  3. Documented evidence of patient Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status in multidisciplinary team recommendations
  4. Documented evidence of communication of initial treatment plan to GP
  5. Documented evidence of supportive care screening
