User manual of A&D Programme V3.0

The key word in the A&D Programme is: comprehensiveness of both professional infrastructure and performance. The philosophy behind comprehensiveness is:
"If all relevant competences, skills, resources and tools concerning cancer care and research are brought together and integrated, it will lead to an outcome that is larger, on the whole, than the sum of its parts". Comprehensiveness, in that sense, can be seen as the new basic principle on how cancer activities institutionally should be organised.

The qualitative standards and quantitative measures of the OECI Accreditation & Designation Programme have been revised in 2019. Manual 3 is the result of a successful collaboration among the A&D Programme, OECI Members, centres/institutes in the A&D Programme, and auditors involved in the peer review process. It builds on OECI’s 12 successful years of experience in cancer quality systems in Europe. For the complete User Manual including the OECI standards.
