Measuring what Matters: evaluation in cancer control programs

The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is currently developing a new 10-year cancer strategy for its citizens. Like the VCCC, sharing knowledge to drive impact is key to their strategic success. The VCCC is delighted to welcome Mr Rami Rahal, Executive Director, Cancer Control at the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer to share lessons from the Canadian experience. Mr Rahal will outline how evaluation informs the decision-making in building a sustainable, world-class cancer system. The presentation will set out a comprehensive approach for measurement-to-action, based on over ten years of experience in Canadian cancer control.
