Core Committee Members

Each SCN has a Core Committee whose members provide important insights into its work. The Committee helps identify emerging issues, assists with priority setting, and contributes to planning and solution design. Members are proponents of change, bringing not only a wide range of expertise and experience, but also voices of and access to broader communities that can be mobilized when required to advance innovation and health system improvements. The Cancer SCN Core Committee includes patients and families, representatives from national and provincial organizations, clinical leaders and experts, researchers, primary care, operational leaders (provincial and zone), and government.
