About the CPQR

CPQR is now a standing committee within CAPCA, the Canadian Association of Provincial Cancer Agencies. This is an important step to sustaining radiation treatment quality improvement advances made over the last 10 years, improving clinical outcomes through radiation treatment innovation and strengthening system performance.

CPQR is a world leader in quality improvement initiatives for radiation treatment. CPQR’s impact demonstrates the value of investing in a partnership model that brings professionals together to improve radiation treatment quality and safety. This collaborative network supports sustainably and drives innovation by addressing common issues, sharing best practices and knowledge across all cancer programs.

CARO’s commitment to high quality patient-centred care is reflected in its new role as steward of the patient-centred programs. CARO’s efforts will further enhance and promote the integration of CPQR’s patient engagement, education and outcome guidance into professional practice across the country.

COMP is recognized for its collaboration with national stakeholders to develop guidelines that enhance the quality and safety of radiation treatment delivery, and played an integral role in the development of CPQR’s suite of Technical Quality Control Guidelines. COMP’s role as the new steward of these guidelines will ensure they remain up-to-date and will drive uptake by the Canadian radiation treatment programs.
