CTRs are tested on their ability to CODE:

"The open-book portion will focus on coding and staging."

CTRs will be affected by ICD-10:

"Part of the reason to remain calm—besides the recent announcement of at least a one-year delay—is that cancer registrars need to know only a portion of ICD-10-CM. Ruhl says the majority of ICD-10-CM codes that registrars will need to become familiar with are located between sections C00 and C96. Sections D00 to D49 also are important.

Since registrars already use ICD-10 for certain functions, this also should help lessen any stress related to the transition. For example, the ICD-O-3 codes used for histology and cancer site coding are based on ICD-10 codes, giving registrars a leg up on their coding colleagues. “Actually, it’s going to make things a lot easier for cancer registrars because we’re already used to seeing the majority of the cancer codes from ICD-10,” Ruhl says.
