I, like many of you, have known someone who has been affected by cancer in a way that made me first pursue a career in the cancer registry profession. Since then, my work has allowed me to provide critical information to clients, allowing them to better understand their patients and make decisions to improve care. This is the key role we all play in the fight against cancer. We are the cancer information specialists. We understand the disease process and do all that we can to collect detailed and complete information for every cancer patient we serve.
This week we celebrate our profession during National Cancer Registrars Week. The week’s theme, Cancer Registrars: Steadfast in an Evolving Environment, reminds us that we are all faced with many changes in this industry, including:
Commission on Cancer Standards updates
American Joint Committee on Cancer coding changes
Rapid Quality Reporting System implementation
Despite these changes, our commitment remains unwavering. I applaud all of you during this year’s National Cancer Registrars Week as well as every week of the year. Your dedication and passion for ensuring quality information is available to the programs and cancer patients you serve is definitely something to celebrate.
Please be sure to check out our Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest accounts throughout National Cancer Registrars Week for further recognition of the hard work you are doing every day in this fight. You are the collectors, investigators and collaborators in this industry and a valuable piece of cancer programs across the country.
