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

Please Complete this NAPBC Survey by February 28

Dear National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) Breast Program Leader,

We would like to thank you for your continued participation in the NAPBC accreditation program and for your commitment to providing high-quality care to your breast patients. In July 2019 the NAPBC Board held a strategic retreat to identify how they can deliver additional value and enhance the level of support and resources for accredited centers.

As part of this process we are requesting completion of a survey to gather your opinions on how we can enhance the value of the NAPBC accreditation moving forward. Completion of this study will count towards compliance with one of the two studies required under Standard 6.1—Quality and Outcomes. The other quality study will need to be center-specific.

We request that you complete this survey by Friday, February 28th. The survey includes 17 questions along with some demographic information about your breast center. It will take between 5-10 minutes to complete. You should have your NAPBC Breast Center ID# available so that we can give you credit for Standard 6.1 and have the number of annual cases from the last complete year to enter. We recommend that you involve the entire Breast Program Leadership Team in your responses to this survey. To assist with that, we've provided a PDF of the survey questions that you can share with your team members to gather their feedback to send to you to complete the survey.

The privacy of your center's responses will be maintained, and only aggregate results will be shared with the NAPBC Board. We also plan to share the aggregated results with the participating centers. Thank you for taking time to complete this survey and please contact us with any questions at
