The Provincial Cancer Care Program of Eastern Health is committed to providing quality and safe patient care.
Accreditation is an effective way for organizations to regularly examine and improve the quality of their services (Accreditation Canada, 2016). The accreditation process is an internationally recognized and respected evaluation process used by many countries around the world to assess health services.
In December 2017, Eastern Health was awarded Accredited with Exemplary Standing by Accreditation Canada after an on-site survey of its care and research. The Cancer Care Program was acknowledged for its commitment to safety and quality care.
“The Cancer Care Program has a strong focus on standardization throughout the province to ensure patient safety and high quality care.” (Accreditation Canada, 2017).
Eastern Health continues to participate in Accreditation Canada’s evaluation process on a regular basis.
The Provincial Cancer Care Program is guided by Eastern Health’s Strategic Plan.
The Provincial Care Care Program supports the provision of high quality and evidence-based care with patients and families as its top priority. The Cancer Care Program seeks to achieve and contribute to the goals set out on Eastern Health’s Strategic Plan.
