The Partnership’s Cancer Control Division implements programs and initiatives that deliver on the priorities of the 2019-2029 Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control. The division is comprised of program teams that specialize in all parts of the cancer continuum – prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, clinical care, survivorship and palliative care. The program teams work in partnership with provincial and territorial governments, cancer agencies, health organizations, health-care professionals, people living with cancer and those who care for them, to drive practice and policy changes that improve the cancer experience for all people in Canada. All program teams in the division place a special focus on populations in Canada who have less access to timely and effective cancer prevention, services and care, and the teams ensure that all initiatives take action to address the unique challenges faced by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples affected by cancer.
The Analyst, Diagnosis & Clinical Care supports the Cancer Control Division in carrying out projects and initiatives to achieve organizational priorities. Reporting to the Manager, Diagnosis & Clinical Care, the incumbent leads activities that support the delivery of program/project objectives.
