Applications for the session of ASCO’s Quality Training Program (QTP) being held at ASCO headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, are being accepted now. The deadline for submission is June 4, but applicants are encouraged to submit early to prepare for Session 1. Once applicants are accepted, they are paired with an improvement coach who can provide feedback and help participants outline their quality improvement goals and plans so they can get the most out of the session.
The comprehensive QTP is designed to train oncology health-care providers to investigate and implement data-driven quality improvement and manage clinical and nonclinical processes and outcomes. The program brings cancer care teams together to select, design, and implement a quality improvement project at their practices. Learning is facilitated through three in-person sessions, which include seminars, case examples, and small group exercises. An experienced improvement coach will be assigned to help guide the team.
Application deadline: June 4, 2018
Session 1: July 11–12, 2018
Session 2: September 20–21, 2018
Session 3: December 5, 2018
ASCO encourages applications from any oncology specialty, as well as from diverse practice types and institutional settings (eg, academic, community, geographic location, practice size). Upon program completion, participants are eligible for both continuing medical education (CME) and maintenance of certification (MOC) credits.
