Fall 2018 NAACCR Narrative Leave a comment

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



Have you had a chance to see all of the free webinars available from NAACCR on topics that are new or changed for 2018? If not, check out our 2018 Implementation page on the NAACCR learning management system (NET): https://www.naaccr.org/2018-implementation/

We currently have recordings on the following topics and expect to add to the list over the next year!

  • New Grade Coding Rules for 2018
  • 2018 Radiation Coding Rules
  • Solid Tumor Rules (Intro, breast, lung, colon, CNS)
  • Summary Stage 2018

The 2018-2019 webinar series started on October 4. The topic of our first webinar was lung and the second is pharynx. My co-host for these three webinars is Wilson Apollo, MS, CTR, RTT. Wilson is a CTR, radiation therapist, and an accomplished educator. Wilson and I discussed the new solid tumor rules, staging (AJCC, EOD, Summary Stage 2018, and SSDIs) and the new radiation codes. Response to these first two webinars of our new season has been outstanding! I’m looking forward to working with Wilson on the December webinar covering Breast.

Our January webinar is on Testis. Denise Harrison and Louanne Currence will be hosting this webinar. If you have not been to a training presented by Denise and Louanne, you are in for a treat!

Keep your eye out for information on upcoming NAACCR Prep Talks! We are working on a robust schedule for 2019. NAACCR Talks are free webinars on topics that concern the NAACCR membership. These are usually topics related to research and data use, analytic tools, and central registry functions.
