The Cancer Education Program at the Princess Margaret is leading in transforming cancer education for the future.

We are a team of educators, health service researchers, instructional designers, clinicians, and digital media specialists that are passionate and hopeful about a future where cancer care is transformed.

There is a worldwide need for greater access to up-to-date cancer education for health professionals, trainees and patients and caregivers due to:

  • the incredible pace of biomedical advances in cancer care
  • the expectation that the number of new cancer cases will increase by more than 30% by 2030
  • the subsequent dramatic increases in the number of cancer survivors
