What is the Cancer Experience Registry?
It is a community of people touched by cancer where the primary focus is on collecting, analyzing and sharing information about the experience and needs of the patient and family throughout the cancer journey.
Why is it important?
There is a need to include social and emotional care as an integral part of cancer care. This has been shown to improve quality of life and also health outcomes of cancer survivors. The information collected from the registry will be used to inform the future of cancer care, develop programs and offer services to more effectively address the emotional and social needs of people affected by cancer.
