Studies of Quality

Improving timeliness of care for patients receiving chemoradiation for non-small cell lung cancer

The purpose of this project was to identify factors within the radiation oncology department that may contribute to delays in patients receiving chemoradiation and decrease the total time required for patients to receive their treatment. According to a baseline audit, the average time from initial contact to start of treatment was around 5 weeks. The goal is to shorten the time from the scheduling of consultation to the first day of radiation from 34 days to 24 days for all newly diagnosed patients with stage 3 non-small cell lung cancer that are receiving chemoradiation by June 2018.
