Expanded inventory of cancer-related presentation slides now accessible online

A searchable directory of nearly 300 downloadable slides is available on cancerview.ca. The slides present data on a wide range of indicators from across the cancer control continuum, including the domains of prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment and research.

The slides also present data related to the patient experience and end-of-life care, as well as long-term outcomes (incidence, mortality and relative survival). Many of these indicators are presented by age, sex, education level, geography and income level.

The slides in the Downloadable Slides Directory are available for non-commercial use and are intended particularly for members of the cancer community and the general public.
