CARO members – we’d love your feedback!

In 2014 CARO launched an initiative aime
d at articulating the rights of patients that undergo radiation treatment. With endorsement from the CARO Board, a working group comprised of patients, advocates, charter experts, oncologists, therapists and physicists was assembled to create a Radiation Therapy Patient Charter. The working group aimed to create a document that outlined what patients, at all centres across the country, can expect during their therapy.

The charter was presented to the CARO Board at their face‐to‐face meeting held last week in Toronto.

As we launch a broad community consultation, we are requesting feedback from CARO members. Comments and feedback will be welcomed until June 1, 2015. Please email your comments or questions to, or call our Project Manager, Erika Brown at 403‐896‐4722.

Thank you in advance,

Ross M. Halperin
