New Resource: Guidelines for Implementation Plan for CoC Standards 5.3–5.6
In 2021, CoC-accredited programs were tasked with creating plans for how they will incorporate synoptic operative reporting to meet the requirements of the CoC Operative Standards (Standards 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, and 5.6) by January 1, 2023. Formal plans must be documented in 2022, and this documentation will be reviewed at site visits in 2023, 2024, and 2025.
To help provide further guidance regarding these plans for implementation, the Cancer Surgery Standards Program (CSSP) has developed a framework and recommendations that are now available for download from the Standards Resource Library, which can be accessed through the Quality Portal (QPort), and from the Operative Standards Toolkit. We encourage you to review these guidelines and contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reminder: Survey for CoC Programs Using Synoptic Operative Reports
The CSSP is seeking feedback from CoC-accredited programs that have already implemented synoptic operative reporting at their facility. If your facility has implemented synoptic operative reports for CoC requirements or for other purposes, please fill out this survey by Friday, January 21 to provide information about your synoptic operative reporting solution and implementation experience.
Please note that this survey is not anonymous. Respondents may be contacted to provide additional information for an article or webinar to inform and support other CoC programs. Questions can be directed to email@example.com.
