Measuring what matters in oncology: Translating research into clinical practice using clinical quality registries
Cancers are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally. Clinical quality registries (CQRs) are recognized as important tools for monitoring and evaluating quality of care in such diseases by measuring variation from what is considered evidence-based, optimal practice (defined a priori by a consensus process involving clinical experts and consumers). The complementary use of clinical and patient-reported data provide comprehensive assessment of the impact of compliance and through insights into variations between institutions (through benchmarking performance) CQRs provide invaluable opportunities for implementation research.
