Identifying ways to improve care for patients with ductal carcinoma in situ: a pilot study to determine the accessibility and reliability of data on patients treated with DCIS in BC
The primary goal of this study is to determine if current therapeutic and follow-up practices may be subjecting women in British Columbia (BC) with Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS) to unnecessarily high risk of local recurrence and death. Secondary goals are to assess patterns of practice in initial management and follow-up for women with DCIS, and to identify potential gaps in care that may be amenable to change to improve outcomes for women with DCIS in BC.
