Community workshops

Community Cancer Outreach Program on Education 

The Network also partnered with UBC Continuing Professional Development (UBC CPD) to develop and present a series of interactive cancer care workshops for family physicians throughout BC. As of 2016, the program engaged over 800 family practitioners in 80+ different communities across BC. Workshops included small-group, case-based learning to support family physicians in their role along the cancer care continuum and focussed on Breast, Prostate, Colorectal Cancer and Advanced Cancers. We are now determining the second stage of this initiative.
