Council and Working Groups

Our programs and activities are led by an Advisory Council and working groups

Together, they work from a community care perspective to help BC Cancer achieve its mission of reducing the burden of cancer in British Columbia.

With the recent expansion of the Family Practice Oncology Network to BC Cancer's Primary Care Program, however, changes in the role and membership of the Council are underway. Dr. Cathy Clelland, Provincial Lead of the Primary Care Program and a family physician (Dr. Clelland bio), will chair this new group once established. 

Ultimately, the Council will report to BC Cancer's Executive Director, Provincial Clinical Programs, providing the insight and vision to guide the planning, implementation and evaluation of activities undertaken by the Working Groups.

 

‎We're working on it! 

Providing accessible, relevant educational opportunities for family physicians throughout BC is the key focus for this group. Chief among these offerings are monthly CME Webcasts held from 8-9:00 a.m. the third Thursday of every month and CME Oncology Learning Sessions provided online and in communities throughout the province. This group is also responsible for planning the Network's Family Practice Oncology CME Day and GPO Case Study Day held every November as part of BC Cancer's Summit in Vancouver.

These working groups develop practical, easy-to-follow cancer care guidelines for family physicians often working in partnership with the BC Guidelines and Protocols Advisory Committee. These guidelines are prepared according to the Advisory Committee format - brief, evidence-based and taking a proactive approach to the management of cancer as a chronic disease.


Working Group Membership:

BC Cancer develops more comprehensive Cancer Management Guidelines, based on the accumulated experience and best practice evidence derived from major cancer centres throughout the world.
