The Cancer Education Video Award Competition is designed to solicit great ideas for educational development from various departments and individuals across the Cancer Program. Video resources can be directed to patients and families or for staff and/or trainees.

The Cancer Education Video Award Competition is supported by funds raised from the Cancer Education OneWalk Team. Videos produced will be made available on the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre YouTube Channel and/or on the UHN Intranet depending on suitability and target learners.
