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 or 608-261-8388.
