NAACCR WEBINAR SERIES

We kicked off the 2022-2023 season last month with the first of a two-part series on breast primaries. Our co-host for Breast Part 1 was Wilson Apollo. The webinar focused on coding treatment for breast primaries with a special emphasis on the radiation fields. Part 2 of the webinar series is scheduled for November 10, 2022. In this session we will continue our review of treatment (we could not cover it all in part 1) and then look at Grade, SSDIs, and a few miscellaneous topics.

In December, Wilson will be back and we will cover primaries of the esophagus.

NAACCR CTR PREP AND REVIEW

 

We just wrapped up our series in preparation of the October exam. This was an exceptionally active group! This group has been very active on the discussion panel! They have lots of questions, discussion, and do an excellent job providing support and encouragement for each other.

It looks like there will be significant changes to the CTR Exam next year. We have already started updating our materials to reflect these changes. The next series should start the 2nd or 3rd week in January. We will not know for sure until exam dates are posted for next year. We try to schedule the date of the final session of the series the same week as the exam. Registration should open in early November.

PRINCIPLES OF CANCER REGISTRIES

Our latest educational product is titled Principles of Cancer Registries. These asynchronous training modules are targeted at international registries. The first module looks at sources of cancer data and the process for collecting cancer data. The second module focuses on Assessing the quality of data collected within a cancer registry. A third module will be posted this summer. It will review the basic registry operations that occur once data is submitted to a central registry.

The modules are available at https://education.naaccr.org/international
