The 2023 SEER Advanced Topics for Registry Professionals Workshop will be held virtually from Tuesday, December 5th, 2023, to Thursday, December 7th, 2023, 11:00am – 3:30pm Central Time.

The workshop expands registrars’ knowledge of several important topics: in-depth coding for LAMN/HAMN, extra-and intrahepatic bile ducts, oropharyngeal cancers and more. Presentations will come from subject matter experts, including physicians.

Participants will be asked to complete assigned cases in SEER*Educate before the workshop. Attendance at the workshop and cases completed will assign CEs.

The workshop is available free to all cancer registrars, but registration is required. Participants can register for the workshop now through November 20th, 2023. The registration link and agenda for the workshop will be available through the NCRA website.
