CoC, NAPRC, and NAPBC Virtual Site Visits—What Programs Need to Know

Thursday, September 24, 2020 | 12:00 pm(CDT)

The American College of Surgeons has created virtual site visit plans for each accreditation and verification program that includes the CoC, NAPBC and NAPRC. The virtual plans we have developed will retain the key components of the in-person visit and offer the same level of quality to assess compliance with the accreditation standards, provide education and consultation, and offer strategies to help programs enhance the quality of their cancer care delivery

To educate our accredited programs about what is involved in a virtual site visit, we are presenting a webinar—CoC, NAPRC and NAPBC Virtual Site Visits— What Programs Need to Know—scheduled for Thursday, September 24, 2020 at 12:00 pm (CDT) to review the components of the virtual site visit plans for each ACS Cancer Program, share results from the pilot site visits, and discuss how the virtual plan option can be utilized by interested programs during the pandemic.
