This video is an additional outreach effort to increase awareness of the Arkansas Central Cancer Registry, and its purposes. Also to provide information regarding who should be reporting and what should be reported.
The Arkansas Central Cancer Registry (ACCR) is a population based registry that collects information on cancer cases. One pertinent goal is to collect accurate, timely and complete cancer data on all persons diagnosed and treated in Arkansas with cancer.
In 1994 Arkansas Legislature passed law 20-15-202. Under this law each hospital or medical facility providing screening, diagnostic or therapeutic services, physicians (including surgeons) and all other health care practitioners or their designees shall report information concerning each cancer case.
