Wisconsin Cancer Reporting System
New - Certified Tumor Registrar Education Program
WCRS is pleased to announce the Cancer Information Management education
program at Southwest Wisconsin Technical College, which will provide specialized
training for Certified Tumor Registrar certification. Please visit the
Southwest Wisconsin Technical College website (exit DHS)
for details about the new Cancer Information Management program starting in the
fall of 2014.
One-on-One Basic Cancer Abstracting
Facility-level training is being offered at the WCRS headquarters in
Madison. This gives individual facilities the opportunity to learn
abstracting using their own facility's medical records. It gives
participants the chance to learn where to find the necessary information
in the medical record that must be abstracted into the cancer abstract.
It also gives participants practice in abstracting. The WCRS trainer
spends the day with the trainees, guiding them through the abstract and
answering questions to help them better understand the cancer abstract
and its contents. For further information, please contact Carole Eberle,
WCRS Trainer, at
