Public Abstract

The National Cancer Institute of Canada's Centre for Health Economics, Services, Policy and Ethics Research in Cancer Control is an equal partnership of the British Columbia Cancer Agency, Cancer Care Ontario, the University of British Columbia and the University of Toronto. The Centre's mission is to create new knowledge and build national capacity in cancer control research, education, policy, and practice in order to improve the health of Canadians. Its research agenda will focus on four thematic areas: (i) Health Technology Assessment; (ii) Health System and Services Research; (iii) Public Engagement and Societal Values; and, (iv) Patients and Families. The Centre will train and mentor graduate students and provide career development opportunities at leading cancer research and academic institutions. The Centre's Pan-Canadian Network will link cancer control practitioners, policy-makers and researchers from across the country to allow them to effectively synthesize, translate and exchange knowledge. This Network will include Provincial cancer organizations, the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer, the Canadian Cancer Research Alliance, the CIHR-Institute of Cancer Research and other national and international bodies. The Centre will host cutting-edge conferences, workshops, and forums in order to share and exchange new ideas and provide a forum for showcasing Canada's world-class research in cancer control.
