Abstract

Objectives: This study investigated hospital staff perceptions of the approved standards and potential benefits of the ”Accreditation on Program of Cancer Care Quality” which was implemented by the Bureau of Health Promotion (BHP) in 2007.
Methods: Structured questionnaires were completed by 295 staff members of eight hospitals that participated in the Accreditation on Program of Cancer Care Quality. T-tests and one-way ANOVA were used to analyze the relationships between related variables, such as the demographic characteristic of respondents and the characteristics of hospitals. Respondents’ perceptions of approved standards and potential benefits of this program were also examined. Multiple regression analysis was then used to examine the effects of independent variables on dependent variables.
Results: Results indicated that demographic characteristics (including gender, age, job position, level of education, total working years and relevant experience with cancer diagnosis and treatments) affected staff perceptions of the approved standards. Moreover, age, job position, hospital level and number of newly diagnosed cancer patients in 2005 predicted staff perceptions of the potential benefits of the program.
Conclusions: This study found that hospital staff were positive about this program with regard to its potential for improving the quality of cancer care. Based on the findings, some recommendations were proposed to BHP: (1) Assist hospitals in preparing related documents when participating in the program. (2) Under the current global budget system, the budget for cancer prevention and treatment is limited. Therefore, the government should consider allocating some budget exclusively for the promotion of quality cancer care. (3) Encourage hospitals to participate in the program by providing financial incentives.
