Synoptic Operative Report Weekly Updates: Best Practices Webinar Recording and Slides Now Available

Thank you to everyone who was able to join our Best Practices for Compliance with CoC Standards 5.7 and 5.8 webinar on June 3, 2021! The webinar recording and slide deck have been added to the Operative Standards Toolkit, our new web page for all Operative Standards educational materials. A one-page summary document with frequently asked questions will be shared in the coming weeks. We would also like to thank our speakers, Matthew H.G. Katz, MD, FACS; Craig Messick, MD, FACS; Tim Vreeland, MD, FACS; Lexy Adams, MD; Mariana Berho, MD; and Rashna Madan, MBBS, for taking the time to share their recommendations for ensuring compliance with these standards.

As a reminder, the Cancer Surgery Standards Program (CSSP) has several resources available to assist CoC-accredited programs with meeting the requirements of Standards 5.7 and 5.8, including podcasts, videos, and visual abstract-style infographics. All of these materials are linked in the Operative Standards Toolkit under the "Standard 5.7: Total Mesorectal Excision" and "Standard 5.8: Pulmonary Resection" sections.
