We develop information because of public interest in a topic or because there are new developments that influence current practice. Research findings and advocacy opportunities that will have an impact on cancer control also lead to the development of information. And ideas come from people who use our information, including people with cancer, healthcare professionals, volunteers, partners and staff.
Writing and review
We work with writers and subject experts to develop our content.
Subject experts – for example, oncologists, other healthcare professionals or researchers – review content for accuracy and credibility and to make sure it reflects current Canadian clinical practice. Our internal experts and editors check and approve all content.
Our cancer information pages are reviewed and updated regularly. And if the evidence changes, these pages are updated as soon as possible.
Print materials are reviewed every year before they are reprinted. All print materials include our toll-free phone number and email address so that people can contact us for the most up-to-date information.
Corrections and improvements
Feedback about our information is kept on file so that we can consider it when the content is revised. Changes that make the text clearer or more accurate are made as quickly as possible.
