Survivor Network Registration
There are over 100,000 cancer survivors in Alberta! Together we can create change, in the cancer care system and our own lives.
What exactly is the CancerBRIDGES Survivor Network?
The CancerBridges Survivor Network (CBSN) is a group of Albertans who have been affected by cancer and want to stay connected and have opportunities to give feedback about their expereince. The Survivor Network will help CancerBridges tap into the valuable insight and advice that patients, survivors and family members have on how to improve the care for cancer survivors in Alberta. The CBSN is also a direct link between cancer survivors and programs dedicated to encouraging survivorship within both Alberta Health Services and community based organizations. It is dedicated to getting cancer survivors into programs what will help them thrive in the turbulent post-treatment/chronic care phase of a cancer journey.
What does the CancerBRIDGES Survivor Network actually do?
As members of the Survivor Network, current patients, survivors and their families can help affect positive change within our Albertan cancer system as well as their own lives. The network:
•keeps its members in touch with the local survivorship resources available
•provides updates on local events of interest to cancer patients and families
•gives its members opportunities to be involved in research projects and asks its members for advice and feedback on proposed changes to the cancer care system
•can be a very powerful and effective tool in creating an informed public outlook on cancer survivorship issues.
How does the CancerBridges Survivor Network operate?
The Survivor Network operates by sending out a monthly email or paper newsletter with updates and information on current developments in cancer care. This newsletter will contain opportunities to be involved in research projects and give feedback as well as highlight survivorship resources.
Why do we have a CancerBRIDGES Survivor Network?
We need to hear from the people who have experienced the cancer system so that we can continually improve it. Through the CancerBridges Survivor Network, we can facilitate the exchange of information between patients, their families and the cancer care system. Our goal is for the Alberta cancer system to provide quality care to people when and where they need it.
