The Patient Involvement in Cancer Research Program (PIP) is a new component of the CCRC that we are pilot testing this year. Over the course of four days, 14 patients, caregivers, and patient group representatives will attend sessions within the scientific conference as well as their own tailored sessions and debriefs with scientific mentors.

The program is intended to broaden participants’ own understanding of cancer research and cutting-edge science and to help facilitate an understanding among the scientific community about the many ways that patients can help inform, support, and strengthen cancer research. It is this spirit of bidirectional learning that is at the core of an approach that what we hope will evolve into an important mechanism to drive an enhanced cancer research enterprise in Canada.

PIP is being held at the Vancouver Convention Centre (East Building) from:

Saturday November 4th, 2017                      1:30 PM


Tuesday November 7th, 2017                       2:00 PM
