Summer 2022 NAACCR Narrative Leave a comment

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




Every year we wrap up the season with our Coding Pitfalls webinar. We comb through the webinar we have presented all year to identify areas where registrars seemed to have problems. We also search the CAnswer forum and SEER SINQ to identify problem issues. We put that all together into a single 3-hour webinar. Our guest host this season is Janet Vogel. Janet has years of experience and is a Compliance & Quality Auditor/Educator for Omega Healthcare.

October starts our new season! As you can see below, our first two sessions cover breast. In our first session we will focus on coding treatment. We will have a special emphasis on the new surgery codes and radiation. Our second session will focus on Solid Tumor Rules, SSDIs, and Staging.

Subscriptions are available for the 2022-2023 Season. We have “re-packaged” some of the products, but the prices are the same as last year.

Registration is now open for the fall session of the CTR Prep and Review. This session is in preparation of the October Exam. Our first session is 8/23/22. We’ve had some really good feedback from the group that just finished taking the exam and will be making some changes based on that feedback.

The series consists of 8 live sessions that are recorded and posted to our learning management system. Participants have unlimited access to the recordings, quizzes, and other study tools until the last day of the exam. We also have a very active discussion board where participants share study tips and provide support for each other.

We have some an exciting new e-learning product on our International Resources page!

Principles of Cancer Registry is new series of training modules that have been selected and adapted for online learning from the larger course, “From Data to Action: A Curriculum for Cancer Prevention and Control in Low- and Middle-Income Countries,” which was created by CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and TEPHINET (Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network.) NAACCR, with funding from NCI, is adapting the registry-related contents for web-based training to increase their accessibility. Although the course emphasis is cancer surveillance in low- and middle-income countries, the general principles covered are applicable worldwide.

The first two modules have been posted.


As always, if you have any questions about the plethora of NAACCR Education and Training products don’t hesitate to contact Jim Hofferkamp or Angela Martin!
