90 Cancer Care Facilities Receive National Achievement Award
The CoC of the American College of Surgeons has granted its Outstanding Achievement Award to a select group of 90 currently accredited and newly accredited cancer programs across the United States.
Established in 2004, the CoC Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) recognizes cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients. The award is granted to facilities that demonstrate a Commendation level of compliance with seven standards that represent six areas of cancer program activity: cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical management, research, community outreach, and quality improvement.
The CoC is adding a new section to the Best Practice Repository titled Cancer Program Promotion. We ask our constituents to share examples of how their program promotes their CoC accreditation, for example, newspaper ads or annual reports.
If you have examples to share, e-mail your electronic versions to email@example.com. If your example is selected for posting in the Best Practice Repository on our web page, we will contact you for written authorization to use the material.
