Cervical Cancer Screening in Canada: Monitoring Program Performance 2009–2011.

The monitoring of cervical cancer screening performance is a priority of the Pan-Canadian Cervical Cancer Screening Network, a national cervical cancer screening forum supported by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (the Partnership). To address this priority, the Network collaborated closely with cervical cancer screening programs to develop standardized reporting definitions, submit data and produce an inaugural report that provided information on cervical cancer screening across Canada from 2006–08. This second report presents data for the years 2009–11 for the 12 cervical screening program performance indicators for women aged 20 to 69 years, plus descriptive information about the use of HPV testing and immunization. This report also provides more detailed cervical cancer information for 20 to 24 year old women and by histological subtype (squamous cell carcinoma and non–squamous cell carcinomas).

Canadian Cancer Statistics 2014

Canadian Cancer Statistics is an annual publication that provides estimates of the burden of cancer in Canada for the current year. This year’s publication also features an in-depth analysis of skin cancer in Canada (Chapter 7: Special topic: Skin cancers). Skin cancer takes a significant toll in Canada related to the high burden of annual cases, social impact and costs associated with its treatment. In 2014, it is estimated that 6,500 new cases of cutaneous malignant melanoma and 76,100 cases of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) will be diagnosed, making skin cancer the most common type of cancer in Canada.

End-of-Life Hospital Care for Cancer Patients

Using CIHI’s administrative data, this study examines the use of hospital services near the end of life by cancer patients who died in acute care hospitals, highlighting variation in service use across provinces. It will add to the existing body of research on end-of-life care for cancer patients and produce new, actionable knowledge on provincial differences in quality of care at the end of life for cancer patients.

Breast Cancer Surgery in Canada, 2007-2008 to 2009-2010

A picture of surgical care from 2007–2008 to 2009–2010 is provided in this report, based on hospital and ambulatory care data that has been standardized by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) to allow for pan-Canadian analyses. Important information on stage of disease, a critical determinant of treatment, was not available for these analyses; however, general trends in breast-conserving surgery (BCS) and mastectomy, surgical re-excisions, reconstructive surgery and complications of surgery are provided. In addition, information on how care was provided (either in hospital or as day surgery) is described. The results presented include women with invasive breast cancer and those with a non-invasive form of the disease, ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS).
