A.Fritz and Associates, LLC -  Preparing Cancer Registry Professionals for the Future

 

Latest news from April...


We would like to update the registry community on April’s fight with pancreatic cancer.  She has been removed from chemo by her oncologist because it is no longer keeping her cancer under control.  She is now searching for a trial or experimental study that might be appropriate for her condition. 

April is continuing to work with her colleagues on the third edition of the Cancer Registry CASEbook which should be available this winter after all of the standard-setters have released their changes for 2018.

We are also working with her associates to be sure that her two primary training courses—Principles of Oncology for Tumor Registry Professionals and the CTR Examination Preparation Workshop—will be offered again next year.

April is very appreciative of all the thoughts and prayers that her fellow registrars have offered to her and her family.

We will provide additional updates on April’s health from time-to-time, as appropriate.

Update on the Third Edition of the Cancer Registry CASEbook
Work on the Third Edition  is progressing, but some of the standard-setters (AJCC, NAACCR, COC, SEER, etc.) aren’t expected to have the 2018 rules available until at least September and April wants to make sure that the new edition will be as complete as possible.  Therefore we don’t expect to have it available until this winter.

In the meantime, we will continue to sell the Second Edition for those who need it.  If you purchase (or have purchased) a Second Edition of the CASEbook during 2017, we will give you a 20% discount on the Third Edition for the first 90 days after it is published, 

Education is the key to professional development in any field.  For cancer registrars, a good education forms the foundation for understanding the principles of oncology and the highly detailed work involved in cancer registration. April Fritz, RHIT, CTR and her associates provide the finest educational opportunities available in the field of cancer registry operations.   

A.Fritz and Associates offers a variety of educational programs ranging from customized presentations prepared for registry professional organizations to three- and five-day highly focused educational programs for beginning registrars, CTR examination preparation courses, and Level II training for more experienced registrars. 

With more than 30 years of experience in cancer registration, April has worked in a variety of settings—hospital registries, central registries, and registry support companies.  She knows what registrars need as the educational foundation for everyday work activities.  In addition, she has been on the leading edge of registry technologies, helping to develop ICD-O-3 and the Collaborative Staging system and can bring that information to her audiences in an uncomplicated, understandable format.   

“Preparing Cancer Registry Professionals for the Future” is more than the slogan of A.Fritz and Associates; it’s our mission.  Schedule a presentation or register for a training program right here.
