EQUIP Health Care’s cancer care project resources. “The main goal of the EQUIP cancer care project is to improve cancer care for people who are experiencing significant health and social inequities. As a first step, we will improve our understanding of the factors that impact the uptake of equity-oriented healthcare strategies within cancer care.”

  1. Rapid Synthesis: Identifying Educational Approaches and Resources to Support Seamless Transitions Between Cancer Programs and Primary Care. (2021).

“It is estimated that nearly one in two Canadians will develop some form of cancer over their lifetimes. In supporting the growing number of individuals transitioning to survivorship care, there is a need to improve the coordination between cancer care and the primary- and community-care sectors. The transition in care following treatment into survivorship requires survivors and their families to adjust how they interact with the healthcare system. Additional supports are required to meet the needs of cancer survivors in this transition, as well as to enhance the capacity of primary- and community-care sectors in providing optimal care during and beyond the care transition.”
