Endometrial Cancer Audit Pilot (ECAP)


There are over 9,700 new cases of uterine cancer diagnosed every year in the United Kingdom. Since the early 1990s, uterine cancer incidence rates have increased by around three-fifths (59%) in females in the UK. It is important that women diagnosed with uterine cancer receive the combination of treatments that will maximise survival, whilst minimising long term impacts on the patient.

The gynaecological oncology community is united in its commitment to establish high quality clinical audits of the management of gynaecological cancers which can drive improvements and reduce inequalities in care within the United Kingdom.

Following the highly successful and impactful Ovarian Cancer Audit Feasibility Pilot (OCAFP), which was a collaboration between the British Gynaecological Cancer Society (BGCS), Target Ovarian Cancer, Ovarian Cancer Action and the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS), a national ovarian cancer audit was commissioned by Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP).

The BGCS proposes a similar project focussing on uterine cancer, with similar objectives to the OCAFP project to raise the profile of the disease, assess regional variation in management and outcome, and promote the call for a fully commissioned publicly funded national audit.
