We are off to a great start for 2019. In 2018, much of our research focused on medical education. We provided research support to some incredible study investigators who are working hard to improve how we train our future health professionals. One study that made the news was the development of an educational program in which breast cancer patients served as teachers to medical students to deepen the understanding of the patient journey.
In 2019, much of our work will be focused on exciting studies in cancer research. We are looking at ways to improve follow-up care for patients who have been screened for rectal cancer. We are also looking at how to monitor patients with rectal cancer in less invasive ways, without compromising survival rates.
In breast cancer research, we want to examine how we can improve communication between specialists and family physicians to ensure we are offering the best patient care possible.
And this is just the beginning for us! We look forward to sharing more updates soon!
