Welcome, Health Care Providers

Doctors are standing and smiling

As a health care provider, you play an important role in the cancer system. This website was developed to support you and provide accurate, current information at your fingertips. The site is structured to reflect the cancer journey - from prevention and screening through to end of life and palliative care. Within each section, you'll find best practice guidelines, referral forms, patient resources, contact information, plus much more.  

Not sure where to begin? Simply click on the dropdown menu located at the top of the page, where you'll find a list of quick links to frequently accessed information. In the "What's New?" section below, you'll find important updates affecting cancer care delivery, educational opportunities, and other items that you will want to know. 

As a regional cancer program working on behalf of Cancer Care Ontario, we are dedicated to ensuring all providers across the region are working in partnership to provide high quality care for patients. 

Thanks for visiting!
