Bowel cancer consumer summary


The bowel cancer Atlas domain presents access, quality and outcome indicators across district health boards and Regional Cancer Network regions for people diagnosed with bowel cancer (adenocarcinoma of the colon or rectum). 

The goal of the Atlas is to explore whether there are wide variations between DHBs in the incidence, treatment and, where possible, outcomes in particular disease areas. The Atlas is designed to prompt debate and raise questions about why differences exist and to stimulate improvement through this debate. This can act as a trigger to spur local action to determine the causes and, if appropriate, local quality improvement activities to improve the quality of care and equity of health care services and outcomes for New Zealanders.
