FLccSC

(“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. Jennifer Sedovic 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. Babette can also answer your questions about content. There is a report function that tabulates quiz results should you want documentation for your manager.

Fundamentals of Abstracting Workshop

This workshop is a day and a half course held at the offices of the Missouri Cancer Registry and Research Center in Columbia, MO.
