  • Program Management: Ensures the program and multidisciplinary team is overseen by a qualified Rectal Cancer Program Director
  • Clinical Services: Confirms rectal cancer patients receive appropriate care based on diagnosis and within specified time targets
  • Quality Improvement: Utilizes data to improve efficiency, standardize care, and improve outcomes

A revised version of the NAPRC Standards Manual was released in October 2017.
