Oncology Education Program

UBC CPD provides a range of educational offerings on cancer care in family practice. Our innovative education is based on the latest guidelines and best practices. Interactive workshops are offered in communities throughout BC and our live webinars are available to everyone. Find out about upcoming oncology education, read online articles, and access physician and patient resources. 

We are pleased to partner with the BC Cancer's Screening Groups, the Family Practice Oncology Network (FPON), and Ovarian Cancer Canada (OCC) in offering these important educational initiatives. Current programs include:

BC Cancer Primary Care Education

The BC Cancer Primary Care Education is an educational partnership building on the previous success of the Cancer Care Outreach Program on Education (CCOPE). The program’s aim is to support primary care providers in their growing cancer care role and share best practices and resources throughout the care spectrum.

To date, a series of online modules have been developed to support providers practicing in British Columbia on the topics of breast, colorectal, and prostate cancer.

Ovarian Cancer Education

Expert presenters discuss the latest best practice approaches to ovarian cancer care in family practice. The recent ‘reverse classroom’ workshops have been very popular, allowing participants to maximize time with experts and improve learning outcomes.

Family Practice Oncology Network Webinars

FPON and UBC's Division of Continuing Professional Development present webinars 0800–0900 a.m. (Pacific time) every third Thursday of every month (except July, August and December). Our complimentary webinars provide opportunity to participate in topical, interactive oncology presentations from anywhere with internet access.
