The new certification module will continue to foster the development of interdisciplinary networks and a centralised commitment to high quality of care in paediatric oncology. The new module was initiated in a joint venture of the German Society of Paediatric Oncology and Haematology (GPOH) and the German Cancer Society (DKG) in 2016. The comprehensive Catalogue of Requirements is based on the directive for paediatric oncology by the Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) and has been successfully implemented into clinical practice in a pilot phase with 7 Paediatric Cancer Centres. Interested centres can register for certification as of now.
