Manitoba Cancer Plan 2016-2021

Delivering Excellence is the title of CancerCare Manitoba’s five-year plan to provide the best cancer services to our patients amid ever-increasing challenges.

Statistics reveal approximately 43,000 Manitobans were living with cancer in 2015 and that number is expected to rise to an estimated 55,000 in 2025.

The Manitoba Cancer Plan outlines CCMB’s strategic directions, objectives and operational strategies framed by three pillars: clinical excellence, operational excellence and academic excellence.

In effect from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2021, the plan acts as a reference for CCMB staff and partners, while meeting the legislated requirements of the department of Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living.

The plan identifies six goal-oriented strategic directions:

     1. Innovation within the cancer-care system to provide patients with access to state-of-the-art services and technologies

  1. Timely access to multidisciplinary, patient-centred care through smooth co-ordination of team members
  1. Enhanced reporting on performance, quality and safety
  1. Building capacity to meet growing needs
  1. Improved care for underserved populations facing cultural, socio-economic, demographic and/or geographic obstacles
  1. Broadening the scope and enhanced strength of research

System Performance Reports

Measurement is an essential part of health system management. It helps us to understand what we are doing well and identify areas where future improvements can be targeted. Examination of trends over time and by geography, as well as comparison to benchmarks and targets, help us to develop insights useful for cancer system planning and priority setting. Evidence shows that a continuous cycle of measurement, monitoring, and reporting will inform and lead to continuous improvement. In addition, it provides a transparent assessment of the cancer system and acknowledges our responsibility and accountability in providing high quality cancer care to all Manitobans living with cancer.

 

There is a growing consensus that specific indicators provide a more complete picture of a cancer system’s performance. CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB) has undertaken significant work to compile many of these indicators into one report. The Manitoba Cancer System Performance Report includes measures from across the continuum of cancer, from prevention to screening to diagnosis, as well as treatment, survivorship, and advanced disease. Outcomes such as incidence, survival, mortality and patient experience are also included and compared across Manitoba’s regional health authorities. 

 

In addition to the Manitoba Cancer System Performance Report, CCMB has developed a report reflecting cancer surgeries performed in Manitoba between 2010 and 2015, the Cancer Surgery Quality in Manitoba report. Surgery is the curative treatment option for many cancers. In the Manitoba Cancer Plan 2016-2021, we identified priorities to ensure consistent access to quality surgical care was available to all Manitobans living with cancer. The report compiles quality indicators for surgeries in breast, colorectal, lung, ovarian and prostate cancers. It allows for feedback to be provided directly to surgeons and establishes a baseline from which areas of improvement can be identified and future progress can be measured.

 

The evidence presented in these reports deepens our understanding of the performance of our cancer system. By measuring and reporting on how we are doing, we can advance areas of strength and address areas identified as gaps. It allows us to focus on improving both the health of our community and the care we provide to Manitobans living with cancer. We thank the staff, clinicians, and surgeons who have contributed to this work both from within CCMB and from our many partner organizations.

Community Health Assessment - 2014

The Community Health Assessment (CHA) serves as an important tool in measuring the pulse of CCMB and the community it serves. This document acts as a guide in understanding the current state of services, the projected future demand for services, and the challenges associated with moving forward to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of cancer patients and their families.
