    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.

    It is important that at least one staff person from each central registry attend. This instructional webinar will cover the standard Call for Data process but will highlight critical changes for this year, including new data items and new de-duplication protocol. This webinar will also be recorded.

    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.

    This presentation is about opening a conversation about how to retain and attract talent by considering the communication experience and reviewing beneficial workplace cultures. Topics discussed will include how to motivate your employees; why kindness matters in the workplace, the importance of workplace culture, how to improve communication, the importance of Benefits and Rewards, as well as have input from CTR's about their work experience.

    Identifying geospatial cancer survival disparities is critical to focus interventions and prioritize efforts with limited resources. Incorporating residential mobility into spatial models may result in different geographic patterns of survival compared with the standard approach using a single location based on the patient's residence at the time of diagnosis. In the presentation, we describe the process of linking residential histories from LexisNexis to New Jersey colon cancer cases and describe results from our geospatial analysis of colon cancer survival that included residential histories.

    This “How To” webinar will introduce participants to newly developed resources to support spatial analysis and health equity research. These resources, which include census tract-level population estimates for the United States, are freely available and developed specifically for using in cancer surveillance. This webinar addresses how to calculate cancer rates in SEER*Stat by tract-level based social measure, such as NAACCR Poverty Code. How to handle the incidence data, census tract-level population estimates, and the area-based social measures data will be covered step by step. This webinar is appropriate for registry analysts, academic researchers, and anyone interested in the use of cancer registry data.

    This NAACCR Talk will present 3 of the Phase II Pilot cohort studies that are linking with registry data via the VPR-CLS. Study updates as well as researchers’ perspective on using the VPR-CLS will be presented. The three studies include the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study, the Transplant Cancer Match Study, and the Cohort Cancer Follow-up Study.

  • Recorded On: 01/24/2022

    This NAACCR Talk will provide a contextual overview of the need for a NAACCR Synthetic Dataset, the history of NAACCR work in this area, guidance on what the synthetic data represent, and list some appropriate use cases. This will be followed by a tutorial on how to generate a synthetic dataset using File*Pro along with a discussion on the methods for generating specific variables.

    During this session we will hear from several central registries on approaches they have used to train and engage new and existing registry staff. They will share experiences and solutions they have found for various training obstacles. Following the presentation we will have a Q&A where participants are welcome to share success and challenges they have experienced in their registry.
