Spend the Day at the Registry


Please join the New Jersey State Cancer Registry for this full-day interactive workshop designed to give hospital registrars a better understanding of the central cancer registry. Meet the NJSCR staff and see first-hand how your data becomes part of our research and publications. Topics covered include data linkages and follow-up, special studies, death clearance and quality control.

Cancer Registrars

New Jersey’s Cancer Registrars are vital data specialists, collecting cancer data and working closely with physicians, hospital administrators, and other health care professionals to maintain a record of each patient’s history, diagnosis, treatment and health status. You are an important part of a health care team, providing complete, accurate and high quality cancer data to researchers, health care providers and planners, and public health officials. They will use these data to improve cancer prevention and screening programs, monitor cancer treatments, conduct cancer research and improve public health outcomes. You also support your organization’s cancer program and ensure compliance of reporting standards. You are our most valuable resource for cancer information. Thank you!
