This research team brings together a novel group of researchers, clinicians and managers from the Centre for Health Care Management at the Sauder School of Business, UBC and the Provincial Radiation Therapy Program at the BC Cancer Agency to address a key concern of Canadians– providing timely access to quality cancer care.

The goal of our collaboration is to develop, test, and implement modern management practices, especially from the field of Operation Research, to increase the efficiency of the cancer system and to enhance patient outcomes.

Our initial focus will be on improving the performance of the provincial RT program, with the intent that the knowledge generated will be transferable to other cancer care services and jurisdictions.
