Are you taking any Complementary Medicines? Tell your health care providers

December 21, 2017

Over the next few months, you may be asked by health professionals at CancerCare Manitoba about your use of complementary and integrative therapies. These are such therapies as vitamin or mineral supplements, herbal therapies, mindfulness practices, acupuncture and massage. We are in the process of changing how we assess and document patients use of these types of therapies so that we have a complete picture of everything you are doing for your health. This will allow your health professionals in the future to provide comprehensive, safe and informed care.

Have you seen a poster in your clinic?

You are invited to take part in this study on out-of-pocket costs and other financial burdens for cancer patients. The P-SAFE Study Team are hoping to learn about your cancer related expenses since your cancer diagnoses and see how these expenses may affect family finances. The costs included in this investigation are: medical costs, non-medical costs (travel, parking, daycare, etc.), and the impact of illness on ability to work. We are also hoping to understand your health insurance purchases and understand if additional insurance purchase would have been helpful in managing these costs.
