Priorities and Programs

The NCRA Educational Foundation’s mission is to support the advancement of the cancer registry profession through education and research. The Foundation has four goals:

  •  Administration and Internal Communications: Assure a sound infrastructure to maintain the Foundation.
  • Finance: Maintain financial stability.
  • Public Relations and External Communications: Promote the activities and achievements of the Foundation.
  • Project Development and Fundraising: Identify, prioritize, and fund projects consistent with our mission and vision.

Recent projects include an updated Introduction to the Cancer Registry USB drive and online product. Designed for Health Information Management (HIM) schools, the recruitment tool targets prospective cancer registrars and provides a glimpse into the roles and responsibilities of a cancer registrar. The tool includes 12 video presentations, an Instructor’s Guide, PowerPoints, and fact sheets. More details can be found at:
