Our Signature Event series brings together practice leaders, policy makers, providers, and patient representatives to solve pressing quality challenges in Ontario’s cancer system.
The one-day events are action-oriented and bring international and national expertise to Ontario to provide practical solutions and identify areas of opportunity to improve the quality of health service delivery within the Ontario context.
These events are then used as a catalyst to form strategic directions and models to implement globally recognized best practices to assist with Cancer Care Ontario’s vision of being the "best cancer system in the world."
