Cancer and Work (www.cancerandwork.ca) is a new, interactive website providing resources from across the country to survivors with practical, up-to-date information on returning to work, including support offered by provinces and territories. “Cancer is affecting people in the prime of their careers,” says Dr. Christine Maheu, Associate Professor, Ingram School of Nursing at McGill and Co-Principal Investigator on the cancer and work website. The website is a collaboration between McGill University, and the BC Cancer Agency, a provincial healthcare provider, in partnership with de Souza Institute.
This one day interprofessional workshop covers a comprehensive curriculum in palliative and end-of-life care topics, including core competencies in symptom management, ethical issues and communication skills in palliative care. The program is adapted by EPEC™-O Canada from the original EPEC™-O course funded by the National Cancer Institute.
