Better Patient Outcomes Begin Here

The NAPRC is based on successful international models that emphasize program structure, patient care processes, performance improvement, and performance measures. We establish multidisciplinary teams and research-supported protocols. We collect data and track processes and patient outcomes. Plus we verify adherence to evidence-based procedures including total mesorectal excision, pathological assessment, and MRI staging and reporting.
