Feedback on Draft Breast Tumour Standards

The Ministry of Health is seeking feedback on draft breast tumour standards which are being developed as part of the Faster Cancer Treatment programme

What are tumour standards?
The tumour standard documents describe the components of care that a patient with the specific tumour type should receive. Draft tumour standards have been developed for the following tumour types.

The breast tumour standards:

  • are patient focused
  • are not clinical guidelines or treatment protocols
  • have some information that is similar across the tumour standard documents
  • are in draft form and final versions will be developed after feedback has been considered.

The document is available at:

The Ministry is only accepting electronic feedback.  Both NZNO and our  Cancer Nurses Section will be making a submission.

Feedback due: To Policy Analyst: or by ringing (04) 494 6389 by 4th of June 2013
