Call for expressions of interest: Cancer treatment data pilot projects
The Partnership is seeking expressions of interest from jurisdictions to participate in pilot projects to enable standardized pan-Canadian reporting of cancer treatment data.

The current lack of standardized cancer treatment data across jurisdictions limits the ability to understand treatment patterns and identify opportunities to improve the quality of patient care. Through the Coordinated Data Development Initiative, the Partnership aims to identify a core set of treatment data elements, seek provincial alignment to common data standards, test the feasibility of obtaining treatment data or creating linked data sets. This EOI is intended to elicit candidate pilot studies that will focus specifically on addressing gaps in the availability of, or access to, one or more types of treatment data.

Interested jurisdictions are invited to submit an expression of interest by November 28, 2014. Successful applicants will participate in an invitational, funded planning process, and partners who demonstrate success in the planning phase will be awarded funding to implement the pilot.
