2020 Statewide Training Series

TCR is excited to sponsor the 2020 Statewide Training Series with Denise C. Harrison, LLC, this summer. This online training series is designed for intermediate and advanced-level cancer reporters wanting to grow their abstracting and coding skills. Enrollment is open to all Texas cancer reporters, including CTRs, non-CTRs, students and out-of-state reporters who work with Texas cancer facilities.

The training series will consist of 10 recorded webinars presented by Denise Harrison, BS, CTR. Each course will include a live Q&A session two weeks after the course is posted, giving reporters two weeks to view each training. Webinar materials, including slides and case scenarios, will be available for download. Reporters who complete the entire training series will receive 13 CE credits (12 in category A).

The webinar series begins on June 8, 2020. A new training will be posted each week.

The modules and materials will only be available through the FLccSC training website.

  1. Register for the entire series via Survey Monkey. You will receive a confirmation with additional details.
  2. Sign up for a FLccSC account, if you don't already have one.
