ICON runs a rigorous accreditation to ensure that cancer care in South Africa meets not only the highest international standards, but also to share best practice information with all affiliated oncology practices in the country.
Inspired by international trends in quality assurance and conscious of the move towards greater efficiency in all aspects of cancer care, ICON was moved to update its accreditation process. This has resulted in a shorter, more user-friendly version put together under the leadership of Professor Raymond Abratt, Head of Clinical Governance.
In May 2015, ICON distributed accreditation documentation to all existing and new oncology practices. Upon successful completion, practices will be awarded accreditation by ICON.
