IV.  Summary of 2002 accomplishments and plans for 2003

 

The reorganized Hospital Tumor Board has a clear direction of where it is going through the primer that it formulated.  Within the primer too are a checklist of accomplishments expected from the Board as well as evaluation parameters of its performance.  Thus, the primer was the most important accomplishment of the Board for 2002.

The other 2002 accomplishments of the Board like the Cancer Registry and the unified concept on cancer causes, prevention, cure, and palliation emanated from the dictates of the primer and checklists.  Based on the 2003 management action plan, the Board is on track and on schedule.

 

For 2003, the new activities that will be done will be the following:

 

Written guidelines:

       Standardized cancer patient management process

Cancer palliation program

Cancer pain control program

 

Conduct cancer research one per department or at least 4 in a year
