Standard 2.3 required programs to have a Cancer Liaison Physician (CLP) as coordinator of community outreach.  This role has been revised and the role given more flexibility.  The solutions are to allow facility-based staff appointed as the Community Outreach Coordinator, the CLP appointed as the Community Outreach facilitator who works in concert with facility-based community outreach staff or the CLP appointed to another designated Coordinator role.  These solutions will be effective January 1, 2006 for surveys performed in 2006.
