FINAL DEADLINE EXTENSION: Final date for submissions: April 15, 2021

Presentation Guidelines
: The presentation should focus on best practices that have improved the quality of care in the following areas:

- Measuring and Reducing Disparities in Cancer Care
- Best Practices in Surgical Oncology
- Hybrid Cancer Care
- Incorporating Patient Reported Outcomes into Quality Improvement
- Successful methods for shifting from the survivorship care plan to providing survivorship services
- Using staging to improve outcomes
 
Abstracts are requested from physicians and allied health care professionals at programs and centers that are accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC), National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), and National Accreditation Program for Rectal Cancer (NAPRC). It is acceptable for an accredited program, center, or individual to submit more than abstract.

All submissions will be reviewed, and selected topics will be accepted for an oral presentation during one of the cancer-related sessions that will be offered during the ACS Quality and Safety Conference.  We are planning to offer this content virtually so no travel will be required. Additional details will be provided to the abstract presenters that are chosen for the conference. Abstract submissions not selected for this conference may be considered for future educational programs.

Please contact Andréa Scrementi with questions.
