Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI)

  • QOPI Certification Program logo

    Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) is an international quality assessment and improvement program for outpatient hematology-oncology practices. Its goal is to create a culture of self-examination and improvement.

    Several of Dana-Farber's satellite centers achieved QOPI Certification status in 2013 and the main Dana-Farber Longwood campus achieved certification in 2014.

    QOPI's measurement of care processes are evidence and consensus-based. They are reassessed and updated every six months by the QOPI Steering Committee, composed of a team of practicing community and academic oncologists, nurses, methodologists, and staff. There are currently over 100 process measures, including:

    Core measures:

    • Documentation of care
    • Chemotherapy planning and administration
    • Pain assessment and control

    Disease-specific modules:

    • Breast cancer management
    • Colorectal cancer management
    • Gynecologic malignancy management
    • Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma management
    • Non-small cell lung cancer management

    • Care at the end of life
