Our Steering Committee


A priority for CPQR has been to raise awareness about radiation treatment quality and safety and to generate a sense of urgency to motivate change through continuous quality improvement. The CPQR Steering Committee has been structured to support this objective, with national thought leaders from each of the professions involved in radiation treatment – radiation oncology, medical physics and radiation therapy. Recognizing that much of the work undertaken by CPQR requires support and input from provincial cancer agencies, CPQR also includes representation from the Canadian Association of Provincial Cancer Agencies.  Two patient representatives are also included to ensure that CPQR programs, and strategic priorities address the needs of patients and their families.
