Cancer Care Ontario seeking advisors

Our vision at Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) is to create the best health systems in the world. Understanding how patients and family members experience the cancer system is central to our efforts to continually improve it. As such, we would like to share a call for the expression of interest of any patient or family member who may be interested in contributing as an Advisor. Advisors can contribute in three ways:

  • Join a committee or working group
  • Participate in focus groups
  • Help review materials sent to patients/families

We are looking for:

·         People who are going through the cancer journey currently who want to share the story about their personal experiences

·         People who are family members/caregivers who have supported loved ones, family, friends through the cancer system and would like to share their stories and experiences

This includes:

  • People from diverse backgrounds and areas of Ontario who are comfortable communicating (speaking and writing) in English
  • Individuals who have some experience serving on a working group (through work or volunteer experience)
  • People who are comfortable participating and engaging in large meetings through discussion and sharing experiences

If you, or someone you know in your region, knows of a patient or family member who would like to act as an Advisor please click on the link and complete the  Cancer Care Ontario form.

Completed forms should be returned to:
