The Canadian Partnership against Cancer would like to inform you about a Call for Applications to attract qualified applicants to who are cancer experts, clinicians, health system experts, health professionals or patient/family representatives to apply for membership on our five new Advisory Committees.
A foundational piece for the Partnership has been its reliance on advisory bodies to foster collaboration and deepen the involvement of a cross-section of members in our work. Advisory Groups and Committees have existed since 2007 as a collaborative network of volunteer experts and patient and public representatives established to advise the Partnership in each of its cancer control priority areas. Building on our learnings, progress, successes in the first decade, the new advisory committees will now be grounded in five themes that align with the Partnership 2017-22 Strategic Plan; quality, equity, seamless patient experience, maximize data impact and sustainable systems.
More detailed information about this opportunity and the application form can be found online.
Candidates will be selected based on their experience or expertise, with a view to having Advisory Committees with diverse skills, experience and perspectives to ensure the organization will benefit from a richness of advice. Geographic diversity will also be considered in selecting members, as will ensuring appropriate representation of the voice of patients and the public in each group.
