Knowledge in oncology progresses so fast that centers have difficulties to maintain their practice. Standardized, quality-controlled and guideline-concordant diagnostic and treatment are basic prerequisites for optimized patient care, especially in patients with malignant diseases. International recommendations are developed for this purpose, but require adaptations to regional specificities. Only trans-regional/national cooperation provides the necessary resources to achieve this objective.
This action will set-up an internet tool (360° software) for the development of guidelines and care pathways allowing rapid and quality-controlled adaptation of care-guidelines/pathways. The purpose is to stimulate exchange of knowledge and optimize care at academic centers and community hospitals.
