The California Hospital Association (CHA) is hosting a webinar to unveil new research on how a hospital’s volume of cancer surgeries impacts patient outcomes. The webinar, “Cancer Surgery Volumes on Outcomes," will take place on July 6, 2017, from 10 a.m.to 12 p.m.

The California HealthCare Foundation has partnered with the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development, a health services researcher at Stanford and the Cancer Prevention Institute of California on a study to measure the volume of cancer surgeries performed at each hospital for certain cancers for which there is evidence of an association between low volume of surgeries performed and increased mortality/poor patient outcomes.

This webinar will include a thorough background of the study and experts who will provide suggested course of actions.

California Medical Association members have been offered the discounted CHA member rate of $185. Nonmember registration is $250.
