    All,

     

    In follow up to the NCI/NAACCR Cancer Reporting Zone Project webinar held on October 23, we are sending you the slides and a questionnaire related to this project. A recording of the webinar is expected to be available next week. 

     

    Please fill in the questionnaire by November 15th if you are interested in participating in the project. Completed questionnaires can be sent to me, Zaria Tatalovich (tatalovichzp@mail.nih.gov), with Dave Stinchcomb (DavidStinchcomb@westat.com) and Diane Ng (DianeNg@westat.com) cc'd on the email

     

    Here is our plan and estimated timeline:

     

    • Interested registries fill in the (attached) request for information
    • NCI selects up to six registries for the first round
    • We expect the process to take about 3 months with the rolling set of registries - when one finishes a new one would be added

     

    Phase 1 (about 4 weeks)

         Kick-off presentation to participating registries

         Discuss the nature of existing geographic areas

         Westat generates zones and presents few alternative zoning solutions

          Phase 2 (about 8-12 weeks)

         Registries review the alternative zone solutions, consult with stakeholders and make the final selection of the optimal zone design

         Zone naming 

         Develop online tool with new zones for use with your registry

          Registries enter cancer rates and contextual variables

    • Phase 3 (TBD)

         Enter data in a common web site

         Help us work through the deployment of zone reporting

         National reporting

     

    All the best,

    --Zaria
