    The Quality Management Partnership wants to hear how we can strengthen quality in the province’s mammography, colonoscopy and pathology services

    All Ontarians deserve the highest quality health care possible.

    That’s why in March 2013, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care asked Cancer Care Ontario and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario to form a partnership to develop provincial quality management programs for mammography, colonoscopy and pathology. The goal of these programs is to improve quality of care, transparency and accountability to support the delivery of consistent high-quality care across these services in Ontario, regardless of the location or facility type. The proposed programs were developed by our Expert Advisory Panels. The panels, chaired by clinical leads with extensive expertise in their respective health service area (mammography, colonoscopy and pathology), include other health care professionals and patients. Your input will be considered as we prepare to submit our final report to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care in March 2015. Upon the Ministry’s acceptance of our recommendations, implementation planning will begin. Consultation is now closed.
