					17th Annual Conference
“Fighting the War on Cancer….I am a Cancer Registrar” 9-11 May 2006 OBJECTIVES
The objectives of the conference are to provide continuing education and ongoing training to cancer registrars at Department of Defense (DoD) military treatment facilities in order to enhance their knowledge and encourage expertise in all areas of cancer registration and cancer data collection standards.

Upon completion of the conference, participants will have a better understanding of the Department of Defense and its comprehensive cancer control plan to decrease the incidence, morbidity, and mortality of cancer among DoD beneficiaries by proposing policies in epidemiology, prevention, early detection, treatment, and research; the world of alternative medicine and how when combined with standardized medical treatment may enhance the quality of life of the cancer patient; a better understanding of the new directions in standardized cancer treatment; a survivor’s story and her strength in the face of everyday military life trying to make a difference in cancer awareness; and the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer Approved Programs and what they can offer us in the Department of Defense. The participants will also learn not only of the new and upcoming changes in the standards and the updates in the (ACTUR) cancer reporting software system, but also in the Department of Defense central registry and how it impacts all of us at our facilities. Upon return to their facilities, registrars will be better prepared to conduct all phases of registry operations. In conjunction with the main conference, there will be a beginner track for new registrars to introduce the basics of registry operations with a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises to get beginners the start they need for a rewarding career in cancer reporting. An application for continuing education credits was submitted to the National Cancer Registrars Association and is pending approval.
