Your Learning Matters - A Patient & Family Education Survey
At Cancer Care Ontario (CCO), we believe patients and their caregivers deserve the best cancer education.
From November 2015 to January 2016, CCO is rolling out the Your Learning Matters survey in partnership with the regional cancer centres and the Walker Family Cancer Centre. The 10 question survey will help us to:
- Understand the type of education and information that patients and families received
- Understand if and how this information helped patients and families through the cancer experience
- Identify gaps in cancer education
If you are currently in, or have gone through the cancer system as a patient or caregiver, and would like to participate in the survey, please speak with the Patient Education staff your local cancer centre. You can also email the CCO Patient Education Program at: PatientEducation@cancercare.on.ca
