Program in Evidence-Based Care

The Program in Evidence-Based Care (PEBC) is an internationally recognized guideline development program based at McMaster University, and supported by Ontario Health. It was established by Cancer Care Ontario (now part of Ontario Health) to support the organization's commitment to drive improvement in the cancer care system.

The program produces evidence-based guidelines and resources in partnership with clinical experts in all major cancer disease sites and across all clinical programs and modalities. The guidelines help clinicians and policy makers apply the best scientific evidence in practice and policy decisions.


  • Develop evidence-based resources to support care and policy decision-making
  • Maintain the quality and currency of resources
  • Disseminate and evaluate resources


Program Initiatives

  • Develop and review 25 to 30 new guidance documents annually
  • Host over 300 guidance documents on the Cancer Care Ontario website
  • Work with clinical experts, patient and family representatives, researchers, and policy and planning experts to develop guidelines.
