Recap of the Oncology Registrars Association of New Jersey
Annual Education Conference – Golden Nugget Casino Hotel
November 16th & 17th, 2017
Submitted by Stacey Ballinger: I had the privilege of attending and representing Registry Partners at the Oncology Registrars Association of New Jersey Annual Education Conference in Atlantic City, NJ. The theme this year was “Shifting Sands in The Changing Tides”. This year’s conference focused on the 2018 changes to AJCC staging.
We also learned about the challenges and opportunities the United States healthcare environment face in regards to oncology research and clinical care. Discussions included how hospital registry data contributes to the National Cancer Data Base, and how that information drives quality at both the hospital and national level. Overall this was a great conference.
Registry Partners raffled off two Visa gift cards and we would like to Congratulate the lucky winners: Donna Nick and Cynthia DeJong!
