A Century of Surgeons and Surgery

A Century of Surgeons and Surgery: The American College of Surgeons 1913–2012
by David L. Nahrwold, MD, FACS, and Peter J. Kernahan, MD, PhD, FACS

12PI-0001

This book chronicles the story behind the evolution of one of the nation’s foremost medical societies, the American College of Surgeons. Drs. Nahrwold and Kernahan devoted four years to researching and writing this engaging account of the College’s achievements, occasional setbacks, and changes in direction as the College steadily works to influence the course of scientific surgery in America and establish itself as an important advocate for all surgical patients. The authors vividly capture the complex personalities of the leaders of the College through the first 100 years. The American College of Surgeons opened its Archives to the authors, providing access to materials not previously available. This work is an authoritative history of the College, published during its Centennial celebration.

About the authors: David L. Nahrwold is retired chair of surgery at Northwestern University, Chicago, and Peter J. Kernahan is a surgeon and medical historian who has written a thesis on the College’s formation.

Cancer Program Standards 2012, Version 1.2.1: Ensuring Patient-Centered Care
13CA-0001

This manual encompasses the restructured requirements that each program must meet prior to survey and includes the revised and new standards that must be met in order to obtain CoC accreditation.

The manual includes standards that are designed to address patient-centered needs, including mechanisms to address psychosocial distress, manage health care barriers and disparities through a patient navigation process, deliver genetic testing and counseling, and provide for preparation and distribution of a survivorship care plan at the conclusion of treatment. The standards have also been enhanced to increase the focus on evaluating the quality of care and outcomes through the introduction of expected performance levels for accountability and quality improvement measures, as well as an annual study that assesses the appropriateness of patient evaluation and treatment planning.

This publication replaces all previous versions of the manual, including: Cancer Program Standards 2009: Revised Edition and Cancer Program, Standards 2012: Ensuring Patient-Centered Care, and Cancer Program Standards 2012, Version 1.1: Ensuring Patient-Centered Care, and Cancer Program Standards 2012, Version 1.2:Ensuring Patient-Centered Care. The requirements in this manual are to be implemented January 1, 2012 and should be used to support compliance with CoC standards for accreditation beginning in 2012 and forward.
