The National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA) and its Council on Certification have updated the credential name of CTR, Certified Tumor Registrar, to ODS, Oncology Data Specialist. The new name better aligns with the evolving scope of practice of cancer registrars and current professional practice terminology. The use of the new credential begins January 1, 2024; NCRA anticipates the adoption will take at least a full calendar year.
CTR credential holders are encouraged to wait until January 1, 2024, to use the new credential.
