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

ZOOM Webinars

The MCR-ARC has begun presenting topics of interest using ZOOM. While we are not currently offering CEs for these presentations, the information should be very helpful in your day-to-day registry work. We plan to explore the option of offering CEs in the future.

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. This class is geared toward new abstractors who are not familiar with the abstracting process and is free of charge. Students use Abstract Plus to work through cases using the MCR-ARC Abstract Code Manual. For those not familiar with abstracting and the MCR-ARC required fields, this is a great place to start.

MCR has a YouTube channel!

MCR staff has created a YouTube presentation on How to Code Missouri Required SSDI’s: Brain, Liver, Melanoma, Plasma Cell Myeloma & Plasma Cell Disorders. At just 24 minutes long, you can quickly review how to code Brain Molecular Markers for Brain, Fibrosis Score for Liver, Breslow Tumor Thickness & LDH Pretreatment Lab Value for Melanoma and LDH Pretreatment Lab Value for Plasma Cell Myeloma & Plasma Disorders. If you have ideas for other issues that can be addressed as short topics and presented in this manner, send your feedback and suggestions to Jennifer Sedovic at
