Quality Assurance - The Certification Procedures

The Euregio Breast Centre has 3 quality labels audited annually by a team of experts from 3 different certification companies.

A quality management system in line with DIN EN ISO was established as a fundamental quality assurance measure in the breast centre in 2001. The Euregio Breast Centre was also the first breast centre to receive national certification from the technical inspection association TÜV SÜD.

The core element of this quality management system is the establishment of a structured and guaranteed clinical pathway for diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer that corresponds to the latest scientific knowledge and places the patients and their individual needs at the core of all quality issues.

On the basis of this established quality management system, the breast centre has undergone an appraisal by a professional team of experts from the German Cancer Society and the Society for Senology (OnkoZert) every year since 2002. By fulfilling the comprehensive catalogue of professional requirements of medical scientific associations, the Euregio Breast Centre has been certified as offering a high quality of medical treatment.

In 2005, as part of a process based on new legal guidelines, the Euregio Breast Centre was recognised by the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia together with 50 other breast centres. Given that it had already complied with the professional requirements of the German Cancer Society, the Euregio Breast Centre was well prepared for a further certification process carried out by experts from the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia (ÄKZert) in January 2006.

With the establishment of a quality management system in line with DIN EN ISO and compliance with the professional requirements of the DKG/DGS and the State criteria for recognised breast centres in North Rhine-Westphalia, the work in the Euregio Breast Centre is monitored and checked on an annual basis. As a result, a high quality of care for women suffering from breast cancer is guaranteed.
