Thank you for your interest in the National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer (NAPRC) accreditation. Your rectal cancer program will be evaluated against comprehensive standards to demonstrate compliance and your commitment to providing high-quality rectal cancer care.
The NAPRC slide deck is intended to be used as a resource for individuals interested in seeking NAPRC accreditation. These slides can be used in part or in whole to communicate the message about the history, value, and current status of the NAPRC.
Education and Training
Web-based education and in-person workshops to educate about the standards, best practices to support compliance with the standards, and tips and techniques for preparing for the site visit.
Tools and Templates
Resources to assist you in recording and tracking your program activity for select standards in between, and in preparation for, site visits.
Access to the CAnswer Forum online community to ask questions, search topics, and connect with rectal cancer program colleagues across the country to share best practices.
Promote your NAPRC accreditation to your community with a variety of resources made available to accredited programs including certificates, posters, and banner stands. Your rectal program is also promoted to the public through the Find an Accredited Center web page.
Applications should not be submitted until the program has 12 months of compliance in place and has a minimum of 10 rectal cancer surgical resection cases during the most recent calendar year.
