in Cervical Cancer
Management

The ESGO accreditation in Cervical cancer management is an award attributed to institutions (both within and outside of Europe), who can offer patients the specific skills, experience, organization, and dedication that are required to achieve optimal levels of care.

 

The ESGO accreditation is based on the completion of ESGO Quality indicators and a scoring system that has been designed and internally validated by an International Expert Panel.

Centres interested in becoming accredited are required to:

  • Complete and meet the ESGO quality indicators.
  • Centres interested in being accredited are required to fill in the self-assessment form. The sum of the individual scores being 109, it was decided that an institution that meets at least 80% of the score (score ≥88) provides satisfactory surgical and radiotherapeutical management of patients with cervical cancer. However, this sum is not the only criterion to take into account.
  • Centres interested in becoming accredited must accept that ESGO may perform random audits of applicants by asking for operative/procedural radiotherapy reports and pathology reports from select cases in their database.

Only centres that meet the above requirements can start the application process for ESGO accreditation by initiating the digital application via REDCap.

  • Self-assessment form.
  • The following pseudo-anonymised database, including all referred cases of cervical cancer, including surgical and non-surgical cases during the last three consecutive years must be provided in order to allow the ESGO accreditation committee to validate the centre’s self-assessment form and must be uploaded to REDCap.
