The newsletter is published on this website at the start of every month to communicate up-to-date information on cancer care-related topics that are of mutual interest to health care providers across the province.
Common topics include:
- New treatment programs
- New policies or practice changes
- Professional standards
- Educational updates & topic reviews
- Patient safety
- Changes to the BC Cancer Benefit Drug List
- Addition or changes to BC Cancer resources such as Cancer Drug Manual (CDM) monographs, Protocols, PPPOs and Patient Handouts
The implementation of new and revised BC Cancer treatment programs, policies and procedures are generally coordinated with a published announcement in the Systemic Therapy Update. This planned coordination allows important practice-related implementations at BC Cancer to be accompanied by appropriate communication and/or education.
