Cancer Care Nova Scotia recognizes that engaging cancer patients and their families is key to enhancing and improving the cancer system. The Cancer Patient Family Network (CPFN) was created to provide a way for patients, family members, and friends to share their experience about ways to enhance and improve the cancer system.

A video has been developed to highlight the role that patient engagement plays in cancer system improvement. In the video patients and healthcare providers talk about what patient engagement is, and why it is important. They also provide examples of meaningful ways that patients have shared their expertise to improve the cancer system, such as participating in a focus group to create new patient education materials, working as a committee member to provide advice about clinical standards, or participating in a research study. Watch the video.
