The annual Family Physicians and CancerControl: Strengthening Linkages Workshop brings together family physicians, health professionals, and oncology specialists to discuss cancer related topics. The purpose of the workshop is to provide family physicians and health professionals the opportunity to build linkages between oncology and primary care communities of practice. It is our goal to improve integration of care by promoting knowledge exchange and relationship building.
This education event is held in-person and by videoconference allowing physicians and health professionals to attend in their local community where cancer care is delivered.
