Why choosing an APEx-accredited radiation oncology facility is important for patients.
The ASTRO Accreditation Program for Excellence (APEx) is an
independent radiation oncology practice accreditation program.
The program is based on a comprehensive set of sixteen standards
of radiation oncology practice, organized around five pillars of
- The process of care
- The radiation oncology team
- Quality management
- Patient-centered care
When you choose an APEx-accredited facility, you know that:
- Y our facility has voluntarily gone through a rigorous review
process by trained radiation oncology professionals.
- Y our facility’s policies and procedures have been evaluated using
objective, verifiable expectations for performance in radiation
- Y our facility is committed to the highest standards of safety and
quality in the practice of radiation oncology.
- Y our facility practices patient-centered care by promoting
effective communication, coordination of treatment and
engaging patients and their families as partners in care.
“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent
direction and skillful execution.”
—William A. Foster
