Institute for Medical Surveillance Workforce Research (IMSWR)
IMSWR’s mission is to serve as the central repository for all existing and new research related to the medical surveillance workforce and to promote access and use of that research to impact recruitment and retention. The IMSWR online repository includes NCRA-directed research specific to the cancer surveillance workforce, along research on similar workforce types conducted by partner organizations.
NCRA Research on the Cancer Surveillance Workforce
NCRA has initiated research to better understand demographics, recruitment opportunities, retention priorities, and workflow models for the cancer registry workforce. The research has been used by management and cancer registry departments to advocate for accurate staffing and salaries.
NCRA’s Center for Cancer Registry Education
NCRA is the premier education and training resource for the cancer registry community. The Center for Cancer Registry Education is designed to provide easy access to high-quality educational programming to support both seasoned professionals and those new to the field. This site offers a variety of products and services, allowing cancer registrars to tailor training and to manage CE credits to maintain the Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR®) credential. Personnel in other medical registries may find the training helpful, especially the learning modules on registry management and quality assurance.
