ICHOM Global first
The Colorectal Cancer Standard Set, developed thanks to an international collaboration between Bowel Cancer Australia and the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM), provides the unique opportunity for healthcare providers to share data and learn from one another through one global standard.
Australian representatives on the Working Group included myself as a Patient Representative and Bowel Cancer Australia Ambassador, Professor John Zalcberg (Monash University), and Professor Craig Lynch (Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre).
The Cancer Standard Set will be presented for the first time on May 17 at the 2016 ICHOM Conference at University College London, UK.
