Information for Health Care Professionals

President & Chief Executive Officer

As physicians and health care professionals, you want to provide the best care possible to your patients facing cancer. At CancerCare Manitoba, we want to support you in this important work. We have developed this comprehensive web site to be your first stop for reliable, up-to-date information about all aspects of cancer care: from making a referral to reviewing drug toxicities, from educational opportunities to current management guidelines. The "Ask the Expert" feature offers you a unique way of getting your cancer questions answered.

The creation of this website is part of CCMB's ongoing effort to make community-based health care providers throughout Manitoba our key partners in the "shared care" model. This model is important in creating effective prevention and screening strategies and in achieving timely diagnosis and treatment, optimal cancer outcomes and excellent supportive and palliative care.

With this website we hope to provide you with the information and contacts you need to be well-informed as you care for patients with cancer and their families. Please let us know what improvements we can make to the information contained here. We hope you find the site useful and we encourage you to visit often!
