Applications are now being accepted for ASCO’s Quality Training Program (QTP), a comprehensive program designed to train oncology health-care providers to investigate and implement data-driven quality improvement, as well as 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. For 2018, participants will be able to choose to attend the in-person sessions in Miami and Alexandria, Virginia. Upon completion, participants are eligible for both continuing medical education (CME) and maintenance of certification (MOC) credits.
The program combines coaching, peer-to-peer mentoring, and shared learning approaches with experiential learning techniques effective for solving quality issues. An experienced improvement coach will be assigned to help guide the team. These coaches, as well as the faculty, are all renowned practitioners in oncology and quality improvement.
