I am pleased to announce the new release of cancer care standards published by Accreditation Canada in January 2016. Those standards address both systemic therapy (chemotherapy) and radiotherapy.

Standards will serve as an evaluation guide by Accreditation Canada for surveys starting after January 1, 2017. You will have at least 12 months to self-evaluate your program and start an upgrade if required.

Standards document is available through your local Accreditation Coordinator if your organization participates in accreditation. If not, it is available for purchase both in English and French on Accreditation Canada web site.

The Canadian Partnership for Quality Radiotherapy (PCQR) is pleased to see this project materialize to ensure the sustainability of its work providing quality radiotherapy across Canada.
