In this webinar:
According to the Canadian Cancer Society, one of two Canadians will be affected by cancer and 9 of 10 Canadians who have cancer are over the age of 50. This session explores whether the Canadian health system is ready to provide quality cancer care to older Canadians who are most affected by cancer. In particular, the presentation covers the following topics:
• An overview of national cancer trends
• A summary of the findings from a recent survey on cancer of 4,000 CARP members
• Perspectives on the issue from CCSN
• A discussion about what is required to ensure that Canada is ready to meet the growing challenge of treating cancer appropriately
The webinar was hosted by Bill Dempster from 3Sixty Public Affairs, who will review the data related to the burden of cancer in Canada and outline the trends. He will be joined by a well-known health policy and public relations leader, Don Sancton, who will summarize the key findings from a recent CARP survey examining Canadians’ knowledge of and experience with cancer and its treatment. That will be followed by a discussion with CCSN’s Jackie Manthorne on what is needed to ensure that the health system is prepared to deal effectively with what is coming. Finally, the moderator facilitate an interactive question and answer session.
