Rectal Cancer Clinical Treatment Standards

With the rectal cancer clinical treatment standards finalized, a process was established to understand the gaps between current clinical practice and the new standard. This information must be gathered, synthesized and included with the standards document when it is sent to the Department of Health and Wellness for review and consideration for approval, as it will inform the implementation plan and any associated costs. The impact assessment, in the form of a survey, was sent to appropriate district leaders in early Feburary 2015. The plan is to submit the standards, with supporting documents, by late Spring.
