ENCR-JRC Workshop on standards and trainings
The JRC is organizing on 24th of November an ENCR-JRC Workshop titled "Defining the road map towards revision of ENCR coding standards and training plan for cancer registries".
The workshop is targeted to selected experts from the cancer registry community, and will be organized as a brainstorming session to discuss and evaluate the priorities in terms of both recommendations (identifying the ones needing an update or new topics to be tackled) and training courses to be planned.
Prior to the meeting, a short questionnaire will be distributed among the workshop participants, aimed at gathering preliminary suggestions to activate discussion. The same questionnaire will be sent also to all the European cancer registries, and is offered you as an opportunity to express your registry needs and requests. Any incoming suggestion will be highly appreciated, and will be considered as proposal for discussion at the workshop. Outcome of the meeting will be a list of priorities to be addressed, that will constitute the basis for the ENCR steering committee to draft a roadmap for the revision of ENCR coding standards and a training plan for cancer registries.
