National Prostate Cancer Audit – Patient Summary 2018

Reports, Patient Focused Reports | Published: 15 May 2019 | Author: HQIP

The National Prostate Cancer Audit (NPCA) assesses the quality of services and care provided to men with prostate cancer in England and Wales.

The NPCA collects clinical information about the treatment and outcomes (what happens after treatment) of all patients newly diagnosed with prostate cancer in England and Wales. This includes information collected from hospital records and directly from patients diagnosed with prostate cancer. The Audit then uses this information to help define new standards for diagnosis and treatment outcomes. The Audit’s findings will give us a better understanding of how people are being looked after. This will help NHS Hospital Trusts to improve the care they provide to patients with prostate cancer.

The NPCA is the first national audit which is able to report on process and outcome measures from all aspects of the care pathway for men with prostate cancer.

The main report which is the fifth annual report provides more in-depth analysis of the Audit’s findings.
