Take the All.Can Patient Survey in Canada

Can you help to shape the future of cancer care? Check out this patient survey launched in Canada.

In healthcare, inefficiency is often caused by neglecting to focus on what matters most to patients. A new international patient survey is gathering insights on inefficiencies in cancer care and is asking Canadian cancer patients (and their carers) to share their thoughts and experiences on where inefficiencies occur, and how cancer care could be improved. Findings will be revealed later this year and used to inform policy discussions on improving cancer care for all.

The survey is being administered by All.Can (, an international multi-stakeholder policy initiative focused on improving efficiency in cancer care. Please share your thoughts, to ensure the patient voice can be at the heart of cancer care. #PatientsAllCan
