Patient and Family Engagement and Experience Program

The Patient and Family Engagement and Experience Program works to assess, understand and improve the experience of people with cancer throughout their cancer experience. To inform this work, the program reviews patient, family and caregiver experience measures used in Ontario. This ensures decisions are based on accurate and relevant information.

The program aims to ensure that every patient can give feedback on their experience, access tools to navigate the cancer system and manage their own experience.
