Catalogue of Requirements

Catalogues of Requirements

The Catalogues of Requirements are based on the clinical guidelines, supplemented by recent research results not yet part of the guidelines or referring to structural requirements, e. g., staffing or the technical infrastructure. Some of these requirements refer to specific structures that need to be provided (like staff with the relevant expertise), whereas others refer to the processual performance as described in the clinical guidelines and are translated into quality indicators, many of which have targets that need to be reached.

Hence, the Catalogues of Requirements and the data sheets for the different tumour entities summarize all technical and medical requirements and are the foundation for the certification of the ECC Programme.

Currently Catalogues of Requirement and data sheets are available for the following tumour entities:

Breast cancer
Colorectal cancer
Lung cancer
Prostate cancer

Catalogues of Requirements exist for several other tumour entities and can be made available upon request.
