At CancerCare Manitoba patients and their families are at the very heart of our work. We strive to provide patient and family-centered health care, using an approach to planning and delivery that recognizes and respects patients and families as partners in the process. There are many opportunities for people with lived experience to ensure that CancerCare Manitoba is truly focused on meeting their needs.
We know that we can learn a lot from hearing about your experience. When you share your story with us, we are able to provide your ideas and suggestions to various committees and teams to help shape their work. We also have occasions where we are looking for people to share their story publicly, through the media, to staff, to other patients and families, and/or at special events.
If you have something you would like to share contact, Susan Kapilik at 204-784-2773 or firstname.lastname@example.org
People who have lived cancer experience, as either a patient or a family member, can volunteer as a Patient & Family Advisor. They work with the CancerCare Manitoba team by participating on committees, in working groups, and providing feedback on patient information and programming.
The level of commitment is flexible and we work to match you with projects and topics of interest to you.
