NATIONAL CANCER REGISTRARS WEEK
The purpose of National Cancer Registrars Week is to emphasize the important role cancer registrars play in recording the data that informs cancer research, prevention, and treatment programs.
Cancer registrars are data information specialists who capture a complete history, diagnosis, treatment, and health status for every cancer patient in the U.S. The data provide essential information to researchers, healthcare providers, and public health officials to better monitor and advance cancer treatments, conduct research, and improve cancer prevention and screening programs.
HOW TO OBSERVE
In 1997, the first National Cancer Registrars Week was observed. The National Cancer Registrars Association promotes the week to highlight how registrars collect and then provide essential information to researchers, healthcare providers, and public health officials.
