 News and Notes

It’s time again tNews and Noteso think about who you would like to nominate for Cancer Care Nova Scotia’s Excellence Awards. The 2013 awards recognize leadership, innovation and excellence in patient care for Nova Scotia cancer patients and families.
Help us recognize health professionals, volunteers or anyone in your community who has worked to prevent, treat and cure cancer. The deadline for nominations is April 26, 2013. Visit for details.


Have you or a family member taken oral systemic therapy (also known as oral chemo) in the past? If your answer is yes, Cancer Care Nova Scotia would like your help. We are developing a fact sheet about oral chemo for patients and families and we want to ensure it is the best it can be.
You can help us in two ways:
1) Review the draft fact sheet and complete a survey about it. The survey deadline is February 12. You can do this from your home.
2) Participate in a focus group. Focus groups will be held in both Halifax and Sydney on February 12th.
If you are interested in completing a survey and/or in participating in a focus group, please email us at or call 1-866-599-2267, option 1.
