There are just two webinars left in the NAACCR 2020-2021 Season. Vicki Hawhee and I will present cover Breast in August. Vicki is an accomplished registrar at Moffett Cancer Center in Florida. She specializes in Education and QA. Our final webinar for this season is the Coding Pitfalls Webinar. Coding Pitfalls is a perennial favorite and will be co-hosted by another perennial favorite, Janet Vogel! Janet is a compliance and QA auditor and educator with Himagine Solutions. During this session we will try to clarify tricky or misunderstood coding issues.

Subscriptions are now available for the 2021-2022 Season! The first session is Oct 7 (it will be here for you know it!). Because so many people are now working from home and we feel strongly that people get the most from our webinars when they view them live, 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.

We just finished our second CTR Prep and Review series of 2021! There are lots of changes to the exam this year. Radiation and Grade have been added to the open book portion of the exam. The closed book session covers the 2020 CoC standards (not including the 2021 updates). If you, or someone you know, are planning on taking the exam this year, be sure to cover these topics carefully! Or better yet, sign up for the NAACCR CTR Prep and Review Series! We have updated our curriculum to include these changes!

The next NAACCR CTR Prep and Review will be for the June exam and is tentatively set to begin on August 24. Additional information and a link to register will be available at
