Latest Series of QOPI Certification Program Webinars Kicks Off May 24—Register Now

May 19, 2017

On May 24 at noon (ET), ASCO will host a one-hour webinar for participants to learn more about the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification Program. Topics covered during the webinar will include: eligibility requirements, benefits, pricing, timeline, and select safety standards. There will be time for a question-and-answer session at the end.

QOPI®, which ASCO established more than 10 years ago, is a voluntary self-assessment and improvement program to assist hematology-oncology and medical oncology practices in assessing the quality of the care they provide to patients. Through the QOPI® program, practices abstract data from patients’ medical records up to twice per year and enter this information into a secure database.

The QOPI® Certification Program, which began in 2010, offers specialty certification to outpatient oncology practices demonstrating commitment to quality. Each practice completes a comprehensive, voluntary assessment of its site against specified standards that are consistent with national guidelines. Those practices that earn the QOPI® Certification designation have scored well on key QOPI® quality measures and have met chemotherapy safety standards established by ASCO and the Oncology Nursing Society in areas of treatment that include:

  • Treatment planning
  • Staff training and education
  • Chemotherapy orders and drug preparation
  • Patient consent and education
  • Safe chemotherapy administration
  • Monitoring and assessment of patient well-being.
