Quality and Efficiency in Swedish Cancer Care - regional comparisons 2011
This special edition of Quality and Efficiency in Swedish Health Care – Regional Comparisons – examines cancer care only. The report, which includes ten forms of cancer and 70 indicators, is a joint project of the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare and the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions. The indicators reflect different aspects of cancer care, including medical outcomes, patient experience and waiting times.
The overall purpose of the report is to promote local, regional and national improvement efforts by comparing the quality of cancer care throughout the country. It is also intended to provide the general public with insight into what publicly financed cancer care is accomplishing.
