We've had a very positive response to date and in the spirit of the holiday season, the abstract deadline has been extended to provide others with additional time to complete an abstract. Adjudication will begin immediately for abstracts already submitted. To submit an abstract visit the abstract submission website.

The conference is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to connect with cancer colleagues from across Canada and learn about innovations in cancer care. It will take place April 7-8, 2017 in Toronto.

NEW CERVICAL CANCER SCREENING GUIDELINES: SHIFTING FROM OVERSCREENING YOUNG WOMEN TO MINIMIZE HARMS
A new report published by the Partnership shows more than half of Canadian women aged 18 to 20 years had at least one Pap test between January 2010 and June 2013. New guidelines released in 2013 no longer recommend screening for women in this age group.

The Cervical Cancer Screening in Canada report also includes information about screening coverage, follow-up, the quality of screening, pre-cancer and cancer detection, and disease extent at diagnosis for women 21 to 69 years of age for the years 2011 to 2013.
