The first webinar in the new 2021-2022 season was October 7th and according to our CE Survey, it was a big hit! We started the webinar going over anatomy, new histologies, and changes to FIGO staging. Wilson Apollo wrapped up the session with an in-depth discussion of radiation techniques used for gynecologic primaries and we code those techniques. The topic for the November webinar is Bladder. Our guest speakers for the Bladder webinar are Denise Harrison and Louanne Currance!

Subscriptions are still available for the 2021-2022 Season. To meet the needs of staff working from home and we have included a free +5 Remote Staff option with every purchase of a 12 webinar series! When you purchase a 12 webinar series, you get a total of 6 connections to the live series.

The final session of the October 2021 CTR Prep and Review was October Tuesday October 12. That’s 4 days before the first day of the CTR Exam testing window. We may be done with the lectures, but the discussion panels are busier than ever! Participants are sending questions to the instructors, sharing study tips, sharing ideas on how they are organizing their manuals for the exam, and maybe most importantly they are providing support and encouragement to each other!

The next NAACCR CTR Prep and Review will be for the March 2022 exam. We won’t know the exact date until test dates are by NCRA. However, the first session will probably be the 2nd or 3rd week of January. Registration should open in mid-November. Additional information will be available at https://education.naaccr.org/ctr.
