Each and every week 3,340 Canadians receive the life-altering news they have cancer. Our mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, children and colleagues will need help and support.
de Souza nurses are helping to transform the cancer experience by empowering patients and their families in the face of this illness and to cope with vulnerability and uncertainty.
de Souza Institute is pleased to partner with the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (CAPO) to be a benefactor for the 2012 Brazilian Carnival Ball. Our two organizations are collaborators dedicated to enhancing clinical services and research to better address the debilitating and prolonged physical, emotional and day-to-day issues of the cancer journey.

de Souza Institute brings the latest tools and best practices to nurses caring for patients and families living with cancer. As a result, in just over three years, there has been a 40% increase in nurses achieving specialized certification in oncology. All of this has been accomplished through the support of a Government of Ontario grant and in partnership with health organizations.
