The view from the top of Hoover Dam looking south over the Colorado River was breathtaking! My friend and I stood there in silence, taking it all in. I had visited Hoover Dam on many occasions, but this visit was the first time I had seen the arch bridge that carries US Route 93 over the river and joins Nevada and Arizona states. It was a beautiful day, the temperature was perfect, and there was a slight breeze coming from Lake Mead behind us as we took in the view.

In the search for new registrars, we often find that applicants have no medical experience or knowledge of the cancer registry. This poster will illustrate an onboarding process on how to train and foster the professional development of a new cancer registrar (Figure 1).

Accurately identifying Class of Case (Figure 1) is crucial in understanding the type of data that can be analyzed in determining valuable patient population characteristics for your cancer program targeted community. Class of Case has a large impact on statistical analysis and public reporting. Physician/institution mergers and acquisitions, contracts, and other agreements make determining class of case challenging.

An individual's access to health insurance influences the amount and type of health services a patient receives for prevention and treatment, and, ultimately, influences survival. The North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) Item #630, Primary Payer at DX, is a required field intended to document health insurance status for the purpose of supporting patterns-of-care studies and other research. However, challenges related to the uniformity of collection and availability of data needed to populate this field diminish the value of the Primary Payer at DX data...

Historically, newly hired staff members were trained using a labor intensive one-on-one strategy and experienced staff participated in monthly education meetings. With the ever-expanding data collection requirements and guideline changes, helping every staff member remain current became impossible to achieve using this methodology. To better address the training needs of each staff member and to do so in a cost effective way, a comprehensive e-training platform was designed.

The Web-based Cancer Program Practice Profile Reports (CP3R) offer providers comparative information to assess adherence to and consideration of standard-of-care therapies for major cancers. The tool helps facilities practice continuous improvement to ensure quality of patient care. The poster will illustrate a process to ensure the presentation of data at a compliance level.

In light of the recent assessment done for ProstateSpecific Antigen values in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program, it is possible that coding procedures for melanoma tumor depth may have similar quality issues. Potential errors that have been initially identified are implied decimal errors, transcription errors, and incomplete information. Because of the SEER Program's commitment to high data quality standards, various studies are being planned to review and adjudicate incorrect lab values for several different data items in the SEER data collection...

Monoclonal B-cell lymphocytosis (MBL) does not have a World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O) morphology code as it is not currently recognized as a reportable disease. Although MBL is premalignant, patients diagnosed with MBL need to be monitored as they eventually progress to chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL). Working together, the Manitoba CLL Disease Site Group (DSG) and the Manitoba Cancer Registry developed a way to record and track these patients to ensure they receive the proper follow-up care...

In newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, it has been shown that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detects additional cancer not found on mammography and thus is useful to map out the extent of disease in the affected breast.1 Others have shown MRI valuable in detecting occult disease in the contralateral breast.2 More recently, it has been reported that MRI is suitable for guiding surgical decisions, especially in younger women with lobular cancer and/ or increased breast density.3 Consequently, MRI is increasingly being used for clinical staging of breast cancer and is currently supported by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) to define the extent and/or multifocality of cancer in the ipsilateral breast, and to screen the contralateral breast at the time of initial diagnosis...

OBJECTIVE: We aim to describe Statistical Control Process as a quality tool for the Institutional Registry of Venous Thromboembolic Disease (IRTD), a registry developed in a community-care tertiary hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina. METHODS: The IRTD is a prospective cohort. The process of data acquisition began with the creation of a computerized alert generated whenever physicians requested imaging or laboratory study to diagnose venous thromboembolism, which defined eligible patients...

Studies have shown timely screening, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer reduces mortality rates. The objective of this study was to evaluate the overall timeliness of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment for Delawarean women using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)'s National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP)'s recommendations of 60 days maximum for screening to diagnosis and 60 days maximum for diagnosis to treatment. This study analyzed Delaware Cancer Registry data for female Delawarean breast cancer patients diagnosed in 2010 who had valid screening, diagnosis, and treatment dates...

BACKGROUND: Studying population-based cancer survival by leveraging the high-quality cancer incidence data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) can offer valuable insight into the cancer burden and impact in the United States. We describe the development and validation of a SASmacro tool that calculates population-based cancer site-specific relative survival estimates comparable to those obtained through SEER*Stat. METHODS: The NPCR relative survival analysis SAS tool (NPCR SAS tool) was developed based on the relative survival method and SAS macros developed by Paul Dickman...

Integral parts of the Seattle-Puget Sound's Cancer Surveillance System registry's continuous improvement model include the incorporation of SEER*Educate into its training program for all staff and analyzing assessment results using the Abstracting Quality Index (AQI). The AQI offers a comprehensive measure of overall performance in SEER*Educate, which is a Web-based application used to personalize learning and diagnostically pinpoint each staff member's place on the AQI continuum. The assessment results are tallied from 6 abstracting standards within 2 domains: incidence reporting and coding accuracy...

Creating an abstract from the electronic medical record (EMR) can seem overwhelming at first. There is so much information, it is difficult to know where to start and how to work your way through all the documents in a short period of time. This article provides one roadmap to build an abstract that can provide a template for a new abstractor or an alternative way of doing things for an experienced abstractor.
