Thompson Cariboo Shuswap Adult Outpatient Medical Oncology Redesign



Commitment: One-time

Connection method: Virtual

Open to Interior Region


We are currently developing a proposal for a new model of care in the TCS Health Service Delivery Area (HSDA). This work is to align services within our Community Oncology Network (CON) clinics with the Tiers of Service, as well as a ‘Hub and Spoke’ model of care.

We are interested in hearing from patients and caregivers who have undergone cancer care treatment at Royal Inland Hospital, Cariboo Memorial Hospital, and/or One Hundred Mile Hospital, regarding their experience in the current state, and input on the model redesign.

We are looking for patient partners to participate in a focus group session in order to learn more about your experience as a patient or caregiver receiving cancer care treatment in the TCS region. We are also interested in your insight and input into our proposed model of care redesign, in order to improve timely access to cancer care, closer to home, in the TCS Health Service Delivery Area.

The focus group will take place virtually, via Zoom, for a 1-2 hour session before June 28th. Specific scheduling of the session is flexible.

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
