There Will be Better Cancer Care in the North

Health Minister Erin Selby has announced Cancer Patients and their Families in northern Manitoba will have enhanced health treatment and care when new cancer hubs open in The Pas and Thompson later this year. Community cancer program hub services will continue to be offered in Flin Flon and will link to these regional hub services.

             

The expanded services will include two full time nurse navigators who will work out of The Pas and Thompson. Additional services will be provided by a psychosocial oncology clinician, family physicians with a specialty in oncology, as well as a clerk and community liaison. It will cost around 770 thousand dollars annually for the front line staff to support cancer patients in the region.

             

Selby says the hubs will better coordinate care and offer some services close to home reducing costs for patients who might otherwise have to travel to Winnipeg to receive diagnosis and treatment.
