Enhanced Collaboration Leading to Shared Understanding:

Canadian Cancer Action Network Membership Online Survey Report

The Canadian Cancer Action Network (CCAN) is a not-for-profit incorporated organization representing the interests of all Canadians affected by cancer.  Informed by a shared vision to have the best cancer system in place, CCAN strives to embed patient and caregiver perspectives in cancer control dialogue to help optimize patient outcomes across the cancer continuum.

In May of 2016, CCAN conducted an online survey of 115 registered CCAN member organizations from across Canada to seek patient and caregiver community insight in key priority areas of cancer control, as well as broader healthcare issues.  The survey, led by CCAN and funded by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, presented a series of comprehensive questions reflecting general, pressing and emerging issues.  The questions were developed in collaboration with our partners, the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health, pan-Canadian-Oncology Drug Review; Canadian Association of Provincial Cancer Agencies; Canadian Medical Association; Canadian Partnership Against Cancer; Cancer Care Ontario and Carers Canada.

It is anticipated that the 2016 survey report will provide CCAN, as well as our members and partners, with a unique opportunity to apply shared understanding to our respective planning, priority setting and initiatives. Please link to the report here.
