ASCO is launching ASCO Practice Central, a new website that serves as an online information hub to help oncology professionals navigate a complicated and ever-changing practice environment while providing high-quality patient care.

- Instructions for participating in the ASCO Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) Reporting Registry
- How to identify and address staff burnout
- Tips to recruit and hire new physicians

Oncology professionals can also turn to ASCO Practice Central for other features, including Oncology Practice Insider, a blog that provides up-to-date news and insight on the successful management of oncology practices and the delivery of high-quality patient care; an online career center, where oncology professionals can search for new professional opportunities; and a calendar of key oncology practice events organized by ASCO or other organizations throughout the world, and upcoming deadlines related to ASCO practice programs. Practices can also learn more about ASCO’s practice support programs, including PracticeNET, ASCO Consulting Services, and ASCO’s Practice Engagement Program through the new website.
