    Participant enrollment for the National Firefighter Registry (NFR) begins in 2022. The NFR is an exposure registry of U.S. firefighters for tracking and analyzing cancer trends and risk factors among the U.S. Fire Service. It is designed to be linked with population-based cancer registries periodically over time for prospective follow-up of participants' cancer status. Presenters from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) will discuss the design and status of the NFR, progress of participant enrollment, plans for cancer registry linkages, and opportunities for collaboration.

    Correct and consistent cancer counts and quality data are critical to the mission of the cancer registry. To achieve these goals registrars must apply the solid tumor rules uniformly. During this webinar we will review the structure and format of the Solid Tumor Manual

    In this course, you will learn about methods for finding and evaluating data sources and conducting data collection using standardized data collection methods, definitions, and coding schemes.

    In this course, you will learn about some essential methods and operations required to maintain a population-based cancer registry that aligns with international standards.   You will learn which persons and tumors to include in the registry and the basics of collecting data on these cases. Coding data according to internationally recognized systems such as ICD-O and TNM is introduced.  Following these recommended methods will allow comparison of cancer data for your population with cancer data collected from other populations. The intended audience is international, focused on staff in existing cancer registries.  The materials assume familiarity with basic epidemiological concepts, such as measures of burden and risk, and basic understanding of anatomy and cancer as a disease.

    Please join us for a NAACCR Talk presenting results from two NIH Cohort Studies which have linked to cancer surveillance data. The first presentation builds upon what was presented in our March NAACCR Talk: Updates from Phase II VPR Pilot Studies, with more details on the unique cancer risk of organ transplant recipients. This study is a participating VPR-CLS study. The second presentation will provide results on the elevated cancer risk among HIV-infected people. This study links directly with a sample of central cancer registries.
