The BC Cancer Surgery Network exists to promote and advance quality cancer surgery throughout the province.
The BC Cancer Surgery Network includes all providers of surgical oncology services from surgeons in remote areas to sub-specialists.
The BC Cancer Surgery Network's vision is that all cancer surgery patients in BC experience the best possible outcomes. This is made possible through the four committees that make up the network.
The BC Cancer Surgery Network has 12 surgical tumour groups, whose purpose is to advise BC Cancer Surgery Network and the BC Cancer Surgery Network Council on the issues and challenges in their respective areas, to improve the surgical management of oncology patients.
Another successful Fall Update on Surgical Oncology conference was held on October 5th 2019 in Vancouver. The presentations can be viewed here.
