Wisconsin Cancer Reporting System
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
