CoC Cancer Liaison Program Tools and Resources Update

Dear Cancer Liaison Physicians,

As a reminder, the Cancer Liaison Program web page includes resources to assist you with accessing CoC Datalinks, navigating select NCDB reporting tools, and preparing reports for the cancer committee to support compliance with Standard 2.2.

To further support you in your role, the following three educational webinars were recently added under the Cancer Liaison Physician (CLP) Resources section of this web page as well as to the CLP menu in CoC Datalinks under the Resources section:

Additionally, the Commission on Cancer is hosting two live webinars in July that we hope you will also find helpful. These webinars are part of the Meeting the 2020 Standards for Optimal Cancer Care series:

More resources and webinars are being developed including an introduction to the Cancer Liaison Program and an in-depth review of National Cancer Database tools. We will share more details as soon as they become available.

Thank you for serving as the CLP for your institution's CoC-accredited cancer program. Your hard work and dedication to supporting your accredited cancer program and to improving the quality of care for cancer patients is greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to reach out to Melissa Leeb mleeb@facs.org or Danielle Lopez dlopez@facs.org if you have any questions.
