Raising the level of knowledge and performance for Cancer Registrars through continuing education

Blog

The 30th Annual VCRA Education Conference is coming soon!
The purpose of this communication is to clarify the use of Ambiguous Terminology as listed in FORDS: Revised for 2016 for case reportability and staging in Commission on Cancer (CoC)-accredited programs. When abstracting, registrars are to use the “Ambiguous Terms at Diagnosis” list with respect to case reportability, and the “Ambiguous Terms Describing Tumor Spread” list with respect to tumor spread for staging purposes. However, these lists need to be used correctly. 
Speaker highlights and a new way to register!
Every year, over 15,000 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer, and 25% of those children will not survive.
A new VCRA/Virginia Hospital Directory is now available. If your contact information has changed or if you no longer wish to be included in the directory, please e-mail Mandy Feagan, VCRA Secretary at, mef7c@hscmail.mcc.virginia.edu. A revised directory will be provided by the end of January.
We have officially “cut the ribbon” for opening day on our brand new website! We couldn’t be more excited and hope you are just as excited about it as we are!
