Thank you for joining the in-person educational conference on March 1-4, 2023, at the Hilton Atlanta in Atlanta, GA. The conference catered to a wide range of specialties and went beyond accreditation standards to include all entities within Cancer Programs.
All three ACS accreditation programs were featured: Commission on Cancer, National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer, and a full day of programming centered around the new National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers standards Optimal Resources for Breast Care. There was dedicated content provided by the American Joint Committee on Cancer and Cancer Surgery Standards Program as well as special sessions from Cancer Research Program and National Cancer Database focusing on quality improvement. Throughout the conference, a special area of focus included quality improvement, using quality measures to drive improvement efforts and a step-wise approach to implementing quality improvement initiatives.
