MEDICAL ATTENDANCE

For over half a century, the National Institute of Oncology has been the center of epidemiological, organizational, methodological, therapeutic, research and educational center of Hungarian oncology. It is comparable with any national oncology institute in any country, with the only compassive cancer center in Hungary and the surrounding countries, with excellent international recognition and a patient satisfaction rate above 95%. The Institute's secret is the professional excellence and human standing of its employees.

The Institute's 6 researchers and 10 clinical departments perform their tasks under high intellectual and technological conditions.
We treat more than 15,000 new inpatients every year and provide more than 56,000 patients with well-being and outpatient traffic to over 600,000.

The quality of scientific and research work is characterized by a cumulative impact factor of over 360 per year, hundreds of domestic, foreign publications, lectures, clinical oncologist and radiotherapy specialist training, and continuous medical training, gap replacement and textbooks for the entire Hungarian oncology.


TASK - ACTIVITY

According to the founding act of the National Institute of Oncology (OOI), Hungary is the center of oncological methodological, organizational, cancer prevention, educational, healing and scientific coordination. To carry out these tasks, the Institute operates 10 Clinical Departments with 347 beds, 6 research departments, with 1072 staff members. The national tasks of the state include the operation of the National Cancer Registry and the supervision of the oncology network.

Main features of clinical activity in 2016:

bed utilization: 63,13%, average care time: 5,30 day, inpatient care: 15.103 case, ambulatory activity: 640.122, cure case number: 45.089 case. In accordance with the Institute's professional coordinating function, the following Euro-conform methodological guides have been prepared and maintained by:

National Cancer Control Program Oncotherapy Protocol, Guidelines for Oncology Domestic guidelines for cancer screening Quality control of cancer patient care The Basics of Oncology university textbook These programs are indicative in all areas of anti-cancer.

The National Oncology Institute leads and coordinates oncology programs within the Public Health Program.

At the National Institute of Oncology, there are 6 research departments with 71 staff. Most of the research topics are applied clinical research, the results of which are continuously integrated into the Institute's preventive and curative activities.

With the cooperation of several universities, the OOI submitted a Széchenyi Tender for the "National Oncology Research Consortium", which, in addition to its rankings, received from the Ministry of Education from 2002 to today a grant of HUF 208,301,5050 under the Széchenyi NKFP 1/048/2001 contract. On the basis of all the above, it can be stated that the research activity of the National Oncology Institute is outstanding according to both domestic and international standards. By winning the Széchenyi research project, the national co-operation of Oncological Research has been realized, which is coordinated by the National Institute of Oncology.

The Institute's clinical and research background in Hungary offers a unique opportunity for theoretical and practical education of oncology, both at graduate and postgraduate levels. The Department of Oncotherapy at the Institute has developed a proposal for a program of graduate and postgraduate education in Clinical Oncology. The curriculum was designed taking into account the training forms of both the European and the American oncologist. The program of the Department of Oncotherapy at the National Institute of Oncology includes a multidisciplinary education program that includes modern knowledge of cancer prevention and development in addition to the clinical knowledge necessary for early diagnosis and complex therapy of tumors.

The National Institute of Oncology, as the professional, methodological and research center for cancer patient care, has built up international relationships that promote the international integration of domestic oncology and tumor research. He participates in a number of intergovernmental agreements, international tenders, and contacts with international health organizations (WHO, UICC, OECI, EACR, EORTC).

These international relationships make it possible to integrate the oncology profession into Europe.

The financial background of its healing activity is provided by a contract with the OEP. The Ministry of Health, Social and Family Affairs provides funding support for its national tasks and research activities (the organization providing public health care services).

In summary, the National Oncology Institute's screening, methodological, and patient care activities correspond to national, state functions. At the same time, the institution's clinical and research background provides a unique opportunity for theoretical and practical training in oncology, both at graduate and postgraduate levels.

On this basis, the National Institute of Oncology is the peak of progressive care in the field of cancer patient care. In addition to its national mission, it provides regional care in the Buda and South Transdanubian regions.
