PCI Head & Neck Cancer
The Patient Concerns Inventory is a free tool for use in modern clinical practice. It consists of 57 clinical and other items which patients are asked to select to help guide their outpatient consultation through the symptoms and problems that they are experiencing following treatment for head and neck cancer. It helps to direct the consultation and can act as a trigger for on-ward referral for areas of patient concern.

The PCI is one of the quality indicators for submission to DAHNO national dataset next year.
Patients should be given a choice between paper and computer versions of the PCI.
Your feedback would always be welcome and there will be a PCI section and discussion at the '10th H&N QOL conference' to be held in November 2016.
