Abstract : This study involved a brief analysis of existing Tumor Registry Centers and exploration of training and organizational factors that might be associated with staff requirements in establishing new centers. The development of a self-instructional training package for the medical vocabulary required of a Tumor Registry secretary was recommended. Study findings covered the following: objectives, services, and procedures for a state-wide tumor registry system; centralization of tumor registry activities; alternative registry systems; relation between registry procedural alternatives and extent of physician involvement in record abstracting; training implications of a state-wide tumor registry system; and research projects relating to Tumor Registries.
