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

The Princess Margaret can and must be the catalyst to do things differently and better for the future, globally.

We will lead in transforming the new health professional, and lead in transforming cancer care that engages patients and family as collaborators.

Our goals are underpinned by health literacy, patient activation, interprofessional excellence, research, collaborative change and knowledge translation. Learn more about the Cancer Education Program's goals »
