St. Vincent’s University Hospital Raises the Bar for Interventional Oncology as an IASIOS Enrolled Centre

12th July 2023

St. Vincent’s University Hospital (SVUH), a world-leading academic teaching hospital, is proud to announce its enrolment as an IASIOS Enrolled Centre, marking a significant milestone in its journey towards achieving IASIOS Accreditation in Interventional Oncology (IO).

IASIOS, the International Accreditation for Interventional Oncology Services, ensures the highest standards of quality and patient care in IO through its globally recognised accreditation programme. As a member of IASIOS, SVUH is committed to providing the highest quality care to its patients, aligning with internationally accepted standards. IASIOS is based on the CIRSE Standards of Quality Assurance in Interventional Oncology, a document endorsed by the European Cancer Organisation (ECO) and 40 international societies. This enrolment demonstrates SVUH’s dedication to delivering exceptional interventional oncology services.

In today’s healthcare landscape, quality assurance is paramount for exceptional healthcare providers. By joining the IASIOS Accreditation programme, SVUH is dedicated to standardising patient pathways and implementing quantifiable benchmarking systems in IO care.

Prof. David Brophy, Consultant Diagnostic & Interventional Radiologist at St. Vincent’s University Hospital, said, “We are proud to join the IASIOS community as an Enrolled Centre. This is a significant milestone in our journey towards achieving IASIOS Accreditation. It reflects our unwavering dedication to providing the best possible care to our patients in the field of interventional oncology.”

SVUH extends its gratitude to Prof. David Brophy and the dedicated members of the Interventional Radiology Multidisciplinary Team for their invaluable contributions throughout the enrolment process. Their expertise and commitment have played a pivotal role in this achievement.

As an IASIOS Enrolled Centre, SVUH becomes part of a global community of IO centres working collaboratively to develop and promote IO practice, while raising awareness about its benefits among patients and medical providers. IASIOS community members have exclusive opportunities to learn from one another, network, and participate in various social events, seminars, and workshops.

SVUH remains committed to advancing IO care and providing the best possible outcomes for its patients. The IASIOS Enrolled Centre status underscores the hospital’s dedication to excellence and its ongoing pursuit of optimal interventional oncology practices.

As an IASIOS Enrolled Centre, SVUH will work diligently to meet the stringent criteria set forth by IASIOS in terms of quality assurance, safety protocols, staff expertise, and treatment outcomes. The hospital will undergo a rigorous evaluation process to demonstrate its compliance with the highest standards of IO care, with the ultimate goal of attaining IASIOS Accreditation.

The journey towards IASIOS Accreditation underscores SVUH’s commitment to excellence and patient-centred care. It aligns with the hospital’s vision of delivering state-of-the-art interventional oncology services that optimize patient outcomes and improve quality of life.

St. Vincent’s University Hospital looks forward to collaborating with the IASIOS community, engaging in knowledge exchange, and leveraging shared expertise to advance the practice of IO. This enrolment in IASIOS further strengthens SVUH’s position as a leader in interventional radiology and reinforces its dedication to providing the best possible care for cancer patients.
