About the CAP education sessions
The Partnership, the Canadian Association of Pathologists (CAP-ACP), and Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) have organized this College of American Pathologists (CAP) education session.
In July 2009, the CAP-ACP endorsed the cancer protocols developed by CAP as the Canada-wide standard for all cancer-pathology reporting. To date, CAP protocols have been implemented in six Canadian provinces with the CAP-ACP’s support.
The protocols help pathologists to report effectively about diagnostic and prognostic findings, which are critical to patient care and the collection of collaborative stage data. The protocols were developed by multidisciplinary teams and are supported by CAP in both paper and electronic formats.
