All Things Cancer Registry

Vicki Hawhee, M.Ed, CTR

CEC: 1 PD

 

The cancer registrar is one of the hidden gems of the healthcare system and an integral part of the oncology team.  To gather pertinent and relevant data to combat cancer, the National Cancer Act of 1971 declared a “war on cancer” and made the reporting of cancer required by law. Many organizations use this data to provide survival statistics, standardization of best course of treatment, and incidence and prevalence. The cancer registrar is tasked with reporting all cancer data to the appropriate agencies in a specific format. Cancer registries must follow specific rules when determining the data elements that must be reported—many reference tools of which are freely available. Any healthcare professional can use these references to help understand oncology terminology, treatment guidelines, staging information and more. Attendees will receive this reference list that includes a brief introduction on how to use it to find information.


Learning Objectives:
1. Learn the educational requirements necessary to become a cancer registrar.
2. List the duties/job responsibilities of a cancer registrar.
3. Describe how cancer data is reported and why it is so important.
4. Use a list of cancer registry references to find information on all topics of oncology.
