Description

Cancer Screening and Early Detection Dialogue in Atlantic Canada

The Canadian Cancer Action Network, in collaboration with the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, is pleased to host the Atlantic Canada 2017 Cancer Conversations that Matter™ event to address inconsistencies in the coordination of cancer screening and early detection in the Atlantic region in Halifax, Nova Scotia, November 6-7, 2017.

Conversations that Matter™ is an initiative of the Canadian Cancer Action Network to help engage Canadians in candid discussions about real-world issues that impact cancer care delivery, system-level healthcare issues and policy decisions from a patient or caregiver perspective.

Building on previous dialogue addressing screening for low-income and underserved populations, the Atlantic Canada 2017 event will convene patients, caregivers, patient groups and systems leaders to explore the total patient experience with respect to screening and early detection in the region.

Led by the Halifax-based facilitation team of Brave Space, the event will provide an opportunity to explore and surface collective wisdom in order to: capture key conversational points with respect to cervical, breast and colorectal cancer screening; co-define a series of patient-centric recommendations to help improve participation in screening and illustrate the total patient experience in a graphic mural to share with system leaders, community programs and patient groups in the region.

Interested individuals residing in the Atlantic region are encouraged to complete the online registration by the close date of October 30, 2017.

IMPORTANT NOTE: A full travel subsidy to offset accomodation and associated travel costs will be made available to individuals upon confirmation of their respective registration status. Registration is not confirmation of attendance.

CCANThis initiative is made possible through a financial contribution from Health Canada, through the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer. The views expressed herein represent the views of the Canadian Cancer Action Network.
