The Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) sponsors two types of live broadcast webinars: National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA) and The North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR). For an overview of the webinar administration process click here.
The North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR)
The Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) facilitates a series of web seminars (Webinars) for cancer reporting professionals.
Webinars address cancer data collection for a specific site and will include information on anatomy, multiple primary and histology coding rules, collaborative staging, and treatment data items.
Didactic exercises will be completed and answers with rationale will be presented.
The Webinar series will be broadcast at host locations across Texas at no cost to participants.
You are welcome to attend any of the locations listed. Registration is not required.
NAACCR requires successful completion of the post-webinar quiz to obtain a Continuing Education Certificate.
Upon the completion of the quiz, attendees will be able to print a Continuing Education Certificate. Please note as this is new.
