Thanks to a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE Grant, the Health Sciences Centre’s patient consent form is being translated to Oji-Cree, Cree and Ojibway. Aboriginal patients who do not speak or understand English will now have a form in their language to clearly understand what treatment or tests they are being asked to consent to.
Most primary care providers have patients who are living with cancer. Our understanding of cancer as a chronic disease and new advances in palliative care are not just for cancer specialists. This page provides information about current course and CPD offerings from Cancer Care Ontario and the Learning Essential Approaches to Palliative (LEAP) Care designed to help all health care providers improve their skills in these areas. Eligible participants receive CPD credits.
