The big idea
We are developing a Best Practice Pathway designed to guide and support healthcare professionals towards delivering step-change pre-referral approaches and diagnosis, treatment options based on patient-centred care and recently published clinical research, and effective post-treatment support.
The best practice pathway takes into consideration current national cancer waiting times, recently published national cancer strategies and existing clinical guidance. It is underpinned by clinical evidence from published medical research trials, patient experience data, best practice case studies and the experiences of men.
The pathway is not intended to be a set of clinical guidelines but a statement of what Prostate Cancer UK and its clinical advisors consider to be best practice. Our aim is to make this an enabler to improve the standard and consistency of care.
