NCRA is offering this special catalog to help registrars prepare for the eighth edition of the AJCC cancer staging system. The catalog includes sessions from the 2017 conference that focused on the eighth edition and the archived webinars from NCRA’s very popular eight-part live webinar series entitled Site Anatomy and 8th Edition Staging held in the fall of 2017. NCRA also has a Cancer Case Studies Workbook that includes 50 cases to practice eighth edition staging and has updated its online case studies.
AJCC 8th Edition Training
2018 Annual Conference Special Disease-Site Tracks
The following learning modules were created from NCRA's 2018 annual conference Special Disease-Site Tracks sessions. The learning modules provide an in-depth review of cases studies for six sites: breast; colon; lung; nasopharynx, oropharynx, HPV-Mediated; and prostate. Physicians will demonstrate how to assign 8th Edition AJCC TNM stage for each case, NCI-SEER staff will review how to determine Summary Stage 2018, and CDC-NPCR staff will ouline how to code EOD. All modules meet Category A requirements.
