The data displayed correspond to only one of the selected samples.

We develop information because of public interest in a topic or because there are new developments that influence current practice. Research findings and advocacy opportunities that will have an impact on cancer control also lead to the development of information. And ideas come from people who use our information, including people with cancer, healthcare professionals, volunteers, partners and staff.
Writing and review
We work with writers and subject experts to develop our content.
Subject experts for example, oncologists, other healthcare professionals or researchers review content for accuracy and credibility and to make sure it reflects current Canadian clinical practice. Our internal experts and editors check and approve all content.
