    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Please join us for a NAACCR Talk featuring the data visualization work of some of our colleagues. Representatives from four registries will highlight their experience with data visualization. Each registry will provide an overview of their data products, including Annual Reports and other products like maps, county profiles, and other statistics (both static and interactive). The speakers will also discuss any challenges and future plans they may have.

    This webinar will provide an overview of the File*Pro software and how it can be used to address common needs from day-to-day registry operations. Practical use-cases will be demonstrated, with an emphasis on the new NAACCR XML data exchange format. The following topics will be covered: • Creating a synthetic NAACCR XML data file for testing purposes. • Modifying an existing NAACCR XML data file. • Comparing two NAACCR XML data files. • Converting a NAACCR XML data file to a CSV file. • Dealing with user-defined dictionaries.
