Cancer Programs Celebrate National Cancer Registrars Week April 9-13
"Cancer Registrars: The Core of Your Cancer Program"
More than 4,000 cancer registrars, their colleagues, and community leaders will observe National Cancer Registrars Week, April 9-13, 2007.
Cancer Registrars find, interpret and record a wide range of demographic and medical information on patients with cancer. The information is submitted to state and national cancer registries for use in research, treatment and prevention initiatives. Cancer programs are thus able to accurately determine cancer patient populations, measure outcomes of treatment and survival, and formulate plans for quality improvement.
Cancer registrars are at the core of every cancer program. Physicians, researchers, and health care administrators rely on accurate cancer data every day, and cancer registrars really deliver. Cancer Registrars hope their work will lead to better treatments, and ultimately, a cure.
The Cancer Registrars at TJUH will mark National Cancer Registrars Week with hosting an open house in the Oncology Data Services Department, 1015 Chestnut Street – Suite 608, between 1 and 3pm on Thursday, April 12th. Please plan to visit our department and learn more! Refreshments will be served!!
