We want to work with underserved communities and our partners in care to build relationships, trust and sustainable solutions to reduce the burden of cancer. Our goal is to engage with patients, survivors, families and communities to help improve the cancer journey. If you feel you have something to share with one of our advisory committees, please be in touch.
Current Committees include:
This handbook provides information about cancer, introduces patients to their health care team, and helps patients get ready for their first appointment at CancerCare Manitoba. This guide also lists different services for First Nations patients, including getting connected with Non-Insured Health Benefits and Health Canada to help with treatment and travel.
CancerCare Manitoba Underserved Population Program (part of the Community Oncology Program) spoke to First Nation, Metis, and Inuit patients and family members about their experiences of being diagnosed with cancer. This video describes, from a patient’s perspective, how to deliver cancer information in a respectful way.
