The Missouri Cancer Registry and Research Center is pleased to offer the following resources for the education of Missouri registrars.


(“Flossie”) is a learning management system full of educational opportunities! It is currently funded by NPCR and was developed under a grant to the Florida and South Carolina central registries. It gives you access to recorded educational webinars from MCR, NAACCR and NPCR as well as educational resources from other state registries. Because it is national, it can also give us access to future resources developed by other states that sign on to this new system and share their training materials.

To start, click the box on the bottom right to “Submit your Registration” by creating a profile and password. Babette Langeneckert will get that info and approve any registrar who lives or works in Missouri.

After that approval, you should be able to enter the site, choose from available courses, enroll, and enter the webinars. Some have quizzes and many carry CEUs. It issues certificates of completion and tracks your completed courses on a list, making it easier to enter that info on the NCRA CE website. There is a User’s Manual. The Help button sends messages to the Florida website programmer re: website problems or desired enhancements. Jennifer can also answer your questions about content. There is a report function that tabulates quiz results should you want documentation for your manager.

Watch the What’s New section of our website for future course additions.

MCR has a YouTube channel!

January 2022 – YouTube Video – Cancer Registry Text – Babette Langeneckert, CTR Senior Data Coordinator and Education Coordinator and Lucinda Ham, RHIA, CTR, Senior Health Program Specialist and QA Supervisor teamed up together to bring you a new YouTube educational video regarding documentation in Text Fields. An abstract summarizes, in a detailed and succinct way, the story of each patient’s cancer diagnosis and treatment. The codes are a way to universally compare data, but the text is essential to back-up those codes. This course will instruct the abstractor on why text is so important and how the only way to defend or justify codes in an abstract is via the text.
