Patient Engagement 

The patient’s voice is critical to the success of this project. In order to learn about the experiences of patients who are receiving chemotherapy treatment at our satellite sites, we are hosting focus groups across the region. The feedback received will help us to better understand how we can improve the patient experience and also to identify gaps. Click here to view the focus group questions.
