​​​​​The Cancer Education Research & Evaluation Program promotes and facilitates leading-edge research, including collaborative and interdisciplinary research, in areas related to the goals of the Cancer Education Program at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. This involves building, and providing sufficient support for a community of innovative researchers to enhance research capacity and to increase internal and external research opportunities for faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students.

The Cancer Education Research & Evaluation Program also works to develop networks between the Cancer Health Literacy Research Centre and researchers in the field in the public and private sectors, locally, nationally and internationally and for acting as the nexus between the Cancer Education Research Centre and the community with respect to:

  • Research initiatives of mutual benefit;
  • Transferring knowledge to society through outreach (e.g. collaborative research; seminars; workshops; lectures; websites; publications).

Connect with us to:

  • Collaborate on education and health literacy related health services research
  • Develop and evaluate patient self-management programs
  • Discuss opportunities to innovate and improve cancer care provision
