Quality care is not a destination. It's a journey in the right direction. That's why NBCC sees quality care as a set of core values, not a checklist of items. Core values help us focus on what matters most. They tell us if we're heading in the right direction. But core values are never finished. Breast cancer care needs to keep getting better.
We need our whole health care system to look at what is and is not working. That way we can continue to improve the quality of care. We need a way to admit past mistakes and make things better. We want changes that will improve the quality of breast cancer care starting right now. Here are some ways you can help make this happen.
