Webinar Registration Tues Nov 29th 1-2pm EST Canadian Cancer Survivor Network


  Tue, Nov 29, 2016 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST

Cancer care is increasingly tailored to individual patients, who can undergo genetic or biomarker testing soon after diagnosis, to determine which treatments have the best chance of shrinking or eliminating tumours.

At our upcoming webinar, the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network will feature a pathologist and clinical oncologist to talk about: 

- how they are using these new tests
- how they communicate results and treatment options to patients and caregivers, and
- how patients can be better informed on the kinds of tests that are in development or in use across Canada

The webinar will be co-hosted by 3Sixty Public Affairs’ Bill Dempster and Rachael Manion, who will introduce the topic, and discuss emerging issues on how diagnostics are regulated and reimbursed across the country.

An interactive discussion will follow, featuring pathologist Dr. Diana Ionescu of the BC Cancer Agency and oncologist Dr. Paul Wheatley-Price of the Ottawa Hospital. Webinar participants will have an opportunity to ask questions of the panel.

Join the presenters to learn more about this emerging area in cancer treatments and how to improve patient access to precision cancer therapies!
