The steps of the accreditation process will be reviewed, including the necessary pre-survey documentation to be submitted with the application, the on-site visit activities, and the final report contents. During the onsite surveys the ACR-ASTRO surveyors review the staffing, equipment, treatment planning process, treatment records, as well as the quality control measures of the facility. The benefits of ACR-ASTRO accreditation will be reviewed as well as common reasons for deferral of accreditation and the corrective action process.
