Journal Title
To identify population-based cancer indicators and construct monitoring systems for the entire lifecycle of cancer patients using a modified Delphi method. A modified Delphi method was used to identify the cancer indicators and measurement by scoping review and gray literature. The final list of cancer indicators was developed by consensus of 11 multidisciplinary experts over multiple rounds and rating scored the importance of each indicator on a 10-point scale. Frequency analysis was performed to rate with median scores ≥7 and finalized the list of indicators according to the priority. Initially, 254 indicators were identified, of which 94 were considered important and feasible. After two rounds of rating by the experts and panel discussions, 26 indicators were finalized in six domains: primary prevention (n = 7), secondary prevention (n = 11), treatment (n = 2), quality of life (n = 4), survivor management (n = 1), and end-of-life care (n = 1). The Donabedian model used for examining health services and the Institute of Medicine quality of healthcare domains were applied to the measurement system. Panel experts identified cancer indicators based on priorities with a high level of consensus, providing a scrupulous foundation for community-based monitoring of cancer patients.
