American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Cancer Surgery Standards Program

The Cancer Surgery Standards Program (CSSP) has been developed to improve the quality of surgical care provided to people with cancer.

The CSSP aims to improve care by setting evidence-based standards for the technical conduct of oncologic surgery and educating surgeons to help them meet those standards. To support implementation and adherence, the CSSP builds and disseminates tools, including synoptic operative report templates and the associated electronic infrastructure.
