WHO WE ARE

A Cancer Registrar is ...

At the core of the nation’s anti-cancer efforts, cancer registrars are data collection and management experts with the training, specialized skills, and an eye for detail to provide the high quality data required in all avenues of cancer statistics and research.

Cancer registrars work closely with physicians, health care administrators and planners, and researchers, to serve as a valuable resource for cancer information with the ultimate goal of preventing and controlling cancer. The primary responsibility of the cancer registrar is to ensure that timely, accurate, and complete data is incorporated and maintained on all types of cancer diagnosed and/or treated within the United States. They also monitor quality of care and clinical practice guidelines, assess patterns of care, and monitor adverse outcomes including mortality and co-morbidity.

Continuing education and training is critical to keeping Registrars abreast of new developments in the field of oncology and cancer registry data management, continuously enhancing the registrar's knowledge and skills.
