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.
NAACCR Webinars address cancer data collection for specific sites and include information on anatomy, multiple primary and histology coding rules, collaborative staging, and treatment data items.
Didactic exercises are completed and answers with rationale are presented.
Webinars are 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.

The National Cancer Registrar's Association (NCRA)
- NCRA is committed to assisting its members in preparing for the transition to TNM and Summary Stage by providing high-quality education.
- NCRA will present live webinars and online courses on TNM and Summary Stage that will focus on both general education and site-specific training.
- The live webinars will be archived to create learning modules, so that registrars can access the training 24-7 in order to accommodate busy schedules.
- CEs will be available for these educational products.
- These live webinars are designed to provide a review of the general staging rules for both TNM and Summary Stage, along with specific sites such as Colon, Breast, Colon/Rectum, and Gynecologic Cancers.
- All webinars are scheduled for 2:00 PM ET (1:00 P.M. Central Time) on the dates noted below.
- The webinar series will be broadcast at locations across Texas.
- Each of the site leads will receive the webinar log in instructions and the handouts to distribute to the attendees. Each site lead person will also receive an administration code to distribute to the attendees that will allow the attendees to go to the Center for Cancer Registry Education (CCRE) to take the quiz and claim their CEs.
- After the webinar, each attendee will go to the CCRE and to their “Learning Activities” folder, log into their account using their member number (or they will create an account if they are not a member) take the quiz and evaluation and claim the CEs. They will be able to print out a certificate or they can retain the information in their “Learning Activities” folder. It will be a record they can refer to at the end of their reporting cycle.
- The webinars are appropriate for all registrars seeking competency in both TNM and Summary Stage methods in preparation for the transition in 2016.
