In early 2013, a Request for Proposals (RFP) process was initiated relating to the accelerated diffusion of strategic quality initiatives for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Specifically, this call for proposals sought to identify and support projects with a coordinated strategy to accelerate the multijurisdictional (preferably pan-Canadian) implementation of an existing, effective quality initiative that will greatly impact Canadians.

Successful projects will be supported from 2014 to 2017. A sustainability plan has been developed for each project to ensure that the initiative continues to provide a benefit to Canadians after the funding period has ended.

Projects supported through this initiative

The Partnership is excited to work with four groups on various quality initiatives that aim to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer patients across Canada. The four projects funded as part of this initiative include:

External Quality Assurance and Proficiency Testing for Cancer Biomarkers in Canadian Clinical Diagnostic Laboratories, and a Program for Introduction of New Diagnostic Tests into Labs Across Canada: Delivering on the Promise of Personalized Medicine
