Hare's Article Published in ACCC's Oncology Issues

Toni Hare's article, Cancer Registry: Raising the Bar to Help Balance Supply and Demand, was published in the Association of Community Cancer Centers' Oncology Issues, September/October 2010 Edition.

"An estimated 7,300 cancer registrars are currently in the workforce, and by 2021, it is projected that at least 800 new registrars will be needed to meet demand."

Toni’s article addresses this demand and defines the opportunities and challenges that exist for the cancer registry profession. The article also discusses the Commission on Cancer's change to Standard 3.1, which now requires abstracting to be performed by a CTR. Click here to read the article.
