Today, January 4th 2015, the Canadian Cancer Society has published their Top 10 CCS-Funded Research Stories for 2015: click here for details. ARCC is very proud to announce that one of our ARCC Investigators, Dr. Lisa Barbera has been featured this year for her May 2015 Publication in the Journal of Oncology Practice titled “Quality Indicators of End-of-Life Care in Patients with Cancer: What rate is right?”
Dr Lisa Barbera of the Sunnybrook Research Institute and Canadian Centre for Applied Research in Cancer Control in Toronto found considerable variation in healthcare services provided to patients at the end of their lives across 4 provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Nova Scotia. She established benchmarks and quality indicators that will help regions evaluate their services and support resource allocation to improve healthcare delivery.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Barbera on this honour, and as always, special thanks go out to the Canadian Cancer Society for their continuing support of applied cancer control research in Canada.
