The McMaster Health Forum convened a stakeholder dialogue on the subject of improving pain and symptom management in cancer care in Ontario. With the support of the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute (through a grant awarded to the Canadian Centre of Excellence in Oncology Advanced Practice Nursing) and the Government of Ontario (through a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Health System Research Fund grant), the dialogue brought together 19 participants from across Canada to examine the problem, options for addressing it, and key implementation considerations.

The results of these Stakeholder Dialogues can now be read online:
