About the Rossy Cancer Network (RCN)
More than 11,000 Quebec patients were diagnosed with cancer in the Rossy Cancer Network in 2012, and thousands more depend on its cancer care and services each year. By leveraging the oncology expertise of doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, researchers and support staff across McGill, the MUHC, the Jewish General Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital Center, the RCN is taking a major step forward in the fight against cancer.
The network, which is aligned with Quebec’s recently announced action plan for cancer care, builds on the strengths of the partners based on a shared vision, mission and rigorous plan for tracking the patient experience and management of the disease, and improving outcomes. It will be supported by resources, tools and initiatives that are standardized across the institutions, such as common patient satisfaction surveys, information technology and best practices in disease management.
