Q&A with Stacy:
Q: What do you recommend for navigating electronic records when abstracting?
A: I recommend having two nice size monitors, one monitor to have the EMR open and the other monitor to have the abstracting software open. This saves a lot of time going back and forth between software.
Q: How did you arrange your office setup for working remotely?
A: I have a large desk to spread out on, a desktop computer with two 26 inch monitors and a laptop computer. I have a closet in my office with shelves and a file cabinet. I changed the door handle to my closet so it locks with a key and I can store items securely. On my walls, I have framed and placed some NCRW posters, my CTR Certification framed and since I work from home I have my fellow staff members pictures framed. When I am talking to my fellow staff members on the phone or receiving an e-mail from them I can look up and see their faces. I also have bulletin boards on my walls, where I place any letters, certificates, encouragements, thank you notes and any other cancer related items.
Q: How have you been recognized as a CTR during National Cancer Registrars Week?
A: This year will be the 14th NCRW I have celebrated. I receive the NCRA packet every year, that comes with a poster, press release and sticker. I have received certificates wishing me a happy National Cancer Registrars Week, lots of goodies with the company logo on them, shared fun facts with co-workers, trivia games, snacks and luncheons. My favorite, is one year I received a throw with the Registry name and year embroidered on it.
