Find helpful support and information here about ocular melanoma
This rare cancer is a challenge in so many ways. The small number of diagnoses in Canada does make it difficult for the mainstream Cancer Agencies to provide adequate services. In some provinces and territories, there are no services at all.
In 2020, Ocumel Canada surveyed Health Care Providers to assess the services currently provided by centres working in the ocular melanoma treatment landscape. We are now working with multiple OM Patient Care Providers across the country to address gaps in the system and advocate for standardized care and improved access to treatment and clinical trials in Canada.
And in Spring 2021 we conducted an ocular melanoma patient/caregiver survey to assess the patient experience as it is today, across Canada. Please click here to view the full survey report:
