Catalogue of Requirements

Organ Cancer Centre

The Catalogues of Requirements are based on the clinical guidelines, supplemented by recent research results not yet part of the guidelines or refer to structural requirements, e.g., technical infrastructure. Some of these requirements refer to specific structures that need to be provided (like staff with the specific expertise), whereas others refer to the standard operating procedures or 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 Centres
  • Colorectal Cancer Centres
  • Gynaecological Cancer Centres
  • Head and Neck Cancer Centres
  • Lung Cancer Centres
  • Neuro-oncology Cancer Centre
  • Prostate Cancer Centres
  • Skin Cancer Centres
  • Visceral Oncology Centres

Cooperation Partners

As cross-sectional disciplines, such as radio-oncology and pathology can cooperate with different organ centres or are can be a part of several oncology centres, the specific requirements are summarized for all tumour entities in separate Catalogues of Requirements.

This allows the cooperation partner to fill out the Catalogue of Requirements independently from the certified Cancers Centres they are cooperating with to submit only one cumulative catalogue.
