The Cancer Education Program at the Princess Margaret is leading in transforming cancer education for the future.
We are a team of educators, researchers, instructional designers, digital media and knowledge exchange specialists who aim to provide greater access to high quality, up-to-date cancer education to health care providers, trainees, and patients and their families.
There is a global need for educational strategies to transfer discovery to practice at an accelerated rate. This need is necessitated by:
- the incredible pace of biomedical and technological advances in cancer care
- the expectation that the number of new cancer cases will increase by more than 30% by 2030
- dramatic increases in the number of cancer survivors living with sequelae of treatment and significant unmet care needs
