Winter 2018 NAACCR Narrative Leave a comment

Jim Hofferkamp, BA, CTR
NAACCR Program Manager of Education & Training



We just wrapped up the fifth webinar in the NAACCR webinar series! So far we have covered Prostate, Larynx, Uterus, Sarcoma, Stomach and Esophagus. For each of these we reviewed anatomy, staging, treatment and of course we had the very popular Epi Moment hosted by Recinda Sherman. We have also taken a “sneak peek” at what will be new with cases diagnosed in 2018 (Grade, Radiation, Summary Stage 2018, AJCC 8th edition, SSDI’s).

I’m very excited about our Boot Camp webinar in March! During Boot Camp we try to minimize lecture and maximize time spent on quizzes. This year we are going to focus on things that are new for 2018.  We will focus on Grade, Radiation, New Histology Codes, and Solid Tumor Rules.

We just finished session 3 (of 8) of the CTR Prep and Review. We have an excellent group of participants this session. Sometimes I think the support and encouragement between participants is just as important as the review of the material!

Check out the NAACCR Education and Training Calendar for a list of all of the upcoming training activities. Don’t overlook the NAACCR Talks. These are free webinars presented by experts in their fields. If you miss the live sessions, we post the recordings on the Webinar Recordings page.
