CCMB Cancer Management Guidelines

Clinical Practice Guidelines are a type of knowledge tool and offer information for clinicians based on scientific research, highest quality of evidence and/or best practice consensus recommendations from cancer care experts. Guidelines can be applied in the various healthcare settings by administrators, clinicians and patients to determine the best course of action when decisions about treatment options or care delivery must be made. The ultimate aim of these guidelines is to ease the patient's journey through the cancer experience, keeping patients and their families at the centre of care.

The Clinical Practice Guidelines Initiative brings together many local partners to participate in the development of CCMB Practice Guidelines and related Practice Tools. Representatives from numerous disciplines, departments, programs, committees and Disease Site Groups contribute actively in the authorship, review and consensus approval of recommendations for treatment of disease/symptom management, systemic therapy summaries and follow-up care. Once guidelines are complete many other partners contribute in the dissemination, implementation and finally, the evaluation and updating phases of the process.
