It was a tribute to the past with a focus on the future.
The 20th anniversary of Princess Margaret Cancer Centre's move to University Avenue brought together current and former staff for a celebration – and a look forward into cancer care 20 years from now.
In a program entitled
Princess Margaret Shifting Horizons, hosted by the Princess Margaret's Dr. Mary Gospodarowicz, Medical Director, Marnie Escaf, Executive Lead, and Dr. Bradly Wouters, Director, Research, (Interim), a number of cancer experts looked into a crystal ball for a glimpse two decades ahead in health care.
Here is a sample of what they had to say:
"We will facilitate a process where there will be much more real-time access to clinical decision support, to data that's required to manage diseases in real time, and where patients will become partners in their care in a much different way than they are engaged now."
Dr. Peter Pisters, President and CEO of UHN, on UHN in 2035
"The future of research is going to be defined by an army of inquisitive and creative research scientists who define the scope of the problem in their own individual sense and address that with their own unique skills and approaches."
Dr. Bradly Wouters, Director, Research (Interim) at the Princess Margaret, on Cancer Research in 2035
"We live in one of the least one of the least dense countries on the planet and we believe everybody can do everything in every province for cancer. And, actually, they can't. So, we have to find a way of improving access to sub-specialty care and virtualizing care going forward."
Dr. Terry Sullivan, Former President and CEO of Cancer Care Ontario on Cancer in Canada in 2035
"In cancer control, most would say the answer really lies in building capacity for people to develop their own healthcare systems rather than import systems from higher resistance countries."
Dr. Simon Sutcliffe, President, Two Worlds Cancer Collaboration Foundation and President and CEO of the Princess Margaret during the move 20 years ago, on Cancer in the World in 2035
"Health is at the forefront of how we've seen change in our world. Improvements in health have indeed redefined our world. It's hard to find any other area or sector where we've seen such huge change."
Felicia Knaul, Director of the Global Task Force on Expanded Access to Cancer Care and Control, on Global Health in 2035
