Current Issues

In addition to sharing information about innovative and sustainable ways to deliver cancer care, provincial cancer agencies and programs are working, planning, and acting collaboratively to:

  • Ensure the safe delivery of cancer care.  While CAPCA has focused initially on the safe administration of chemotherapy, plans to address the safe delivery of radiation therapy and safe surgery are already underway. 
  • Improve the transition of care between primary care and oncology settings, as well as communication between these two expert groups.  
  • Identify, evaluate, and support processes to improve cost-effective access to evidence-based cancer treatment.
