About the OncoSim name
|Recently the Partnership renamed its cancer control decision-making tool OncoSim. It was formerly known as the Cancer Risk Management Model or CRMM.
Knowledge fuels enhanced decision-making
For health or policy leaders, decision-makers, or researchers, knowledge is power — it fuels important functions such as decision-making, planning, and budgeting. When faced with the challenge of how to invest scarce health-care dollars, sound knowledge is critical.
OncoSim is a web-based, dynamic micro-simulation model that helps guide cancer control decision-making
Whether you are involved in screening, diagnosis, treatment, palliative or end-of-life care, now you can strengthen your decision-making efforts with customized cancer control projections. This population-based model helps you assess the cost/benefit of various cancer control strategies by projecting their impact on Canada’s population health and economics — at any point in time, and for all provinces and territories — via a web-based platform.
Solid input = Solid output = Sound decision-making, planning, and budgeting
The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer developed the model to support the Canadian cancer control strategy and the model is available for policy-makers, researchers, and planners in government ministries and public sector organizations. Drawing on a solid foundation of clinical and socio-economic data, the model is dynamic: as cancer control research evolves, so too does the model.
