NEW INITIATIVE AIMS TO ENHANCE PATIENT INVOLVEMENT IN CANADIAN CANCER RESEARCH
 
Cancer System Performance | 2017 Report
 
The Patient Involvement Program, a new initiative of the Canadian Cancer Research Alliance, is set to launch during the fourth Canadian Cancer Research Conference taking place in Vancouver on November 5-7, 2017. Throughout the conference, fifteen patients, caregivers, and patient group representatives will join tailored sessions and debriefs with mentors, designed to help them better understand the many ways in which patients contribute to cancer research.

The Partnership has invited two of its 2017 Patient and Family Advisors (PFAs), Zeba Tayabee and Kathy Brooks, to participate in the program. PFAs play an integral role in our decision-making structures and help guide our work to orient the cancer control system to better meet patient and family needs.
