In this webinar, an expert panel of doctors answer some of the most commonly asked questions about how COVID-19 is influencing cancer treatment across Canada.
In this webinar, you will find answers to common questions such as:
• How is cancer treatment managed differently during the pandemic?
• Can people with cancer participate in clinical trials during the pandemic, and will clinical trials already underway continue?
• Why can’t caregivers accompany loved ones in cancer treatment centers as freely as before the pandemic? What considerations are made when deciding if a loved one can accompany someone receiving treatment?
• If I contract COVID-19 during cancer treatment, how will the healthcare system help me manage both conditions?
