Course description

Did you know that medical practices are mandated to report cancer cases to the state within six months of the date of diagnosis or within four months after the date of discharge from the reporting facility? Do you know what needs to be reported, and where to report that information?

Join the Illinois State Medical Society (ISMS) and the Illinois Dermatological Society (IDS) for a webinar about the important function of the Illinois State Cancer Registry (ISCR), the only population-based source for mandated cancer incidence information in Illinois, and physicians' legal responsibility to report to the ISCR. Lori Koch, ISCR's Registry Manager, will provide an overview of the ISCR, and answer your questions as time allows.
