LBI-HTA published the report “Quality of care in oncology and its measurement” in 2011 where international efforts in indicator development are discussed. Therein 17 indicator sets for measuring quality in oncological care were presented as examples. In order to give clinical practice a hands-on tool book in the area of cancer care quality indicators, this compendium provides details about generic (i.e. not cancer type specific) process indicators (i.e. not structure or outcome) from this pool of 17 oncological indicator sets.

The focus of this compendium lies on processes after a confirmed diagnosis of cancer. Therefore indicators for preventive care including screening are not covered. Five of the 17 indicator sets did not contain any generic process indicators. All generic process indicators found are listed. 31 generic process indicators that were found in at least two of the 17 indicator sets, are described in greater detail in this compendium.
