Concordance with NCCN colorectal cancer guidelines and ASCO/NCCN quality measures: An NCCN institutional analysis
Practice Guidelines as Topic
Adherence to guidelines and quality measures is generally high at institutions participating in the NCCN colorectal cancer database. Lack of documentation, patient refusal, delayed treatment initiation, and lack of consensus about whether treatment was essential were the primary reasons for nonconcordance. Measurement of concordance and the reasons for nonconcordance enable participating centers to understand and improve their care delivery systems.
