Choosing the right accreditation program is an important decision. ASTRO has developed several resources to assist you as you consider ASTRO’s APEx - Accreditation Program for Excellence® and to facilitate internal discussions within your practice about accreditation.
Unique Qualities of APEx: Key Highlights Explored provides an overview of what sets APEx apart from other accreditation programs. It highlights specific requirements within APEx, such as the culture of safety, intradisciplinary peer review for all professions and patient education/referrals. This document can help your practice make an informed decision as you review the unique benefits and features of APEx.
ASTRO has also created a library of presentation slides called Transitioning to APEx Accreditation that you can customize depending on your audience (e.g., administration, physics, etc.). These slides will help you effectively communicate the advantages of APEx to your team and address any questions they may have.
In addition to these resources, we offer opportunities to engage with professional peers and ASTRO staff:
