Guidelines & Protocols

The Network develops brief, practical cancer care guidelines for family physicians often in collaboration with the BC Guidelines and Protocols Advisory Committee.

These guidelines are prepared according to the Advisory Committee format: easy-to-use, evidence-based and taking a proactive approach to the management of cancer as a chronic disease.

Guidelines

To date we have co-published guidelines on Palliative Care (newly updated) and Female Genital Tract Cancers and contributed to guidelines for Colorectal and Breast Cancer in partnership with the BC Guidelines and Protocols Advisory Committee. 

In 2016, we published independently produced guidelines for Upper Gastrointestinal Cancers, and are now working on a guideline for Prostate Cancer with guidelines for HPV Related Oral, Head and Neck Cancers to follow.

Guidelines Evaluation

The Family Practice Oncology Network recently took part in a project, funded by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, to evaluate the awareness and use of clinical practice guidelines for breast and colorectal cancer released in 2013. 

View the Final Report and Evaluation Summary published in June and August 2015 respectively.
