NAPBC Standards

NAPBC Standards for Accreditation image

The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) standards for accreditation address the full continuum of cancer—from prevention to survivorship and end-of-life care—while addressing both survival and quality of life. The NAPBC standards address the following domains:

  • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best care and treatment options available
  • Access to breast-specific information, education, and support
  • Breast center data collection on quality indicators for subspecialties involved in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Ongoing monitoring and improvement of care
  • Information about participation in clinical trials and new treatment options

Strengthen your program. Improve outcomes. Become a NAPBC-accredited breast center.
