For organizations

There will be an ongoing need for health care professionals to be educated in cancer and palliative care, since 90% of Canadians will benefit from palliative care. Many cancer patients are not treated in a cancer unit or Centre; many are treated in community based hospitals. All health care professionals need understanding of the complexities of cancer care.
