The BC Cancer Agency Radiotherapy (RT) program started the Prospective Outcomes and Support Initiative (POSI) at all six centres to utilize patient-reported outcomes for immediate clinical care, quality improvement, and research. Patient-reported outcomes were collected at time of computed tomography simulation via tablet and 2 to 4 weeks post-RT via either tablet or over the phone by a registered nurse. From 2013 to 2016, patients were approached on 20,150 attempts by POSI for patients treated with RT for bone metastases (52%), brain metastases (11%), lung cancer (17%), gynecological cancer (16%), head and neck cancer (2%), and other pilots (2%)...

With the increasing complexity of cancer treatment and the emergence of technologies that offer individualized therapy options for people being treated for the disease, cancer care professionals are facing greater demands for knowledge exchange and information input. The Canadian Partnership for Quality Radiotherapy was established in 2010 in response to such demands and has used both bottom-up and top-down approaches to successfully support improved program planning, treatment delivery, and patient care within the Canadian radiation treatment community...

Health leaders and caregivers are focused on evidence-based data to drive care delivery and practice. Ensuring the health system is functioning effectively and efficiently and that patient outcomes are reaching expected targets are topics that permeate conversations at the local, provincial, and national levels. However, as many leaders have come to understand in recent years, healthcare data collection and producing meaningful, high-quality metrics is a complex set of tasks, requiring its own level of attention and dedicated resources...

Cancer is a significant challenge globally. Reducing the impact of cancer requires a program and plans that address the main aspects of cancer from prevention through to end-of-life care. This article summarizes the requirements of a robust cancer control program and outlines the contextual and leadership considerations that are required to ensure that the planning and implementation of a control program can achieve improved cancer outcomes.

This article will provide an overview of the evolving nature of cancer treatment, the benefits and challenges of these new treatments, and the leadership strategies required to manage the evolution from a system perspective. The number and complexity of novel cancer therapies, while offering improved patient outcomes, has become a challenge for the healthcare system due to the high cost of these new therapies. In Canada, the implementation of the pan-Canadian Oncology Drug Review and the pan-Canadian Pharmaceutical Alliance helps to streamline the review and negotiating process and to ensure consistency across provinces...

Les leaders en santé du Canada affrontent une foule de défis dans le secteur de la philanthropie en santé. Ces défis ne se limitent pas à l'aspect pratique des mesures à prendre pour réussir, mais également à des questions éthiques. Est-ce que la collecte de fonds est acceptable si elle donne lieu à des partenariats avec des entreprises qui participent à l'apparition de maladies causées par le mode de vie? Quand la reconnaissance méritée envers les donateurs ou les bénévoles dépasse-t-elle les bornes et favorise-t-elle un accès privilégié aux soins? Les décisions éthiques de la philanthropie en santé doivent opposer les témoignages de reconnaissance ou les partenariats avec les donateurs au bien public, qui s'inscrit dans le mandat des établissements de santé et qui fait partie et des obligations fiduciaires des hôpitaux et des cliniciens envers les patients...

Predictive analytics can support a better integrated health system providing continuous, coordinated, and comprehensive person-centred care to those who could benefit most. In addition to dollars saved, using a predictive model in healthcare can generate opportunities for meaningful improvements in efficiency, productivity, costs, and better population health with targeted interventions toward patients at risk.

Value in healthcare is a challenge that is faced all over the world; costs continue to rise despite efforts to increase quality and efficient healthcare delivery. Heart failure is a progressive chronic condition that has been demonstrated to benefit from close monitoring with positive effects on mortality and morbidity when well managed. This article will review the Porter model for value in healthcare by comparing the current state of heart failure management in Ontario, Canada, with the six key concepts of the value agenda...

As the ease of obtaining genetic information for both the diagnosis and treatment of diseases has become increasingly common, so have concerns about the misuse of such information. The obstacles Canada faces in adopting genetic non-discrimination legislation have left health leaders with a lack of clear direction. Using the Kingdon agenda-setting framework, this article will identify lost opportunities for policy change and will analyze the potential for the adoption of a genetic non-discrimination policy in Canada...

Lynette Reid
Health leaders in Canada face a myriad of challenges with healthcare philanthropy-not just the practical question of how to be successful but also ethical questions. Is fundraising in partnership with companies that are implicated in the so-called lifestyle diseases appropriate? When does appropriate recognition for donors or volunteers cross the line into facilitating preferential access to care? Ethical decision-making in health philanthropy considers appropriate recognition or partnership in donor relations in the context of the public good with which healthcare institutions are entrusted and the fiduciary responsibilities of hospitals and clinicians to patients...

Fanor Balderrama, Christopher J Longo
Smoking has a tremendous negative impact on the Canadian economy and contributes to growing costs in the healthcare system. Efforts to reduce smoking rates may therefore reduce strain on the healthcare system and free up scarce resources. Academic literature on economic smoking cessation incentives presents a countless variety of interventions that have met with varying degrees of success. This study reviews six different variables used in the design of incentives in smoking cessation interventions: direction, form, magnitude, certainty, recipient grouping, and target demographic...

The transition from Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) to Adult Mental Health Services (AMHS) can be challenging for youth, their families, and healthcare providers. The purpose of this study was to identify, summarize, and assess evidence found in scholarly literature regarding the economic impact on youth and their families during the transition from CAMHS to AMHS. Relevant studies were identified through a search of 7 electronic platforms. The search identified 829 articles; 5 of which met all inclusion criteria...

The leadership shift from directing people to action to inspiring people to action will focus on the coach approach to leadership and will clearly demonstrate how taking this approach not only gives lasting cultural change but also builds leadership capacity. Current examples of healthcare organizations that have implemented this approach will be shared along with the use of best practices coaching skills that embrace the International Coach Federation core competencies and code of ethics.

Ken Tremblay
In the wake of transformational change powered by the digital era, resultant leadership challenges and strategies essential for successful change, both tactical and cultural, are linked to defined capabilities within the Systems Transformation domain of the LEADS in a Caring Environment framework. Honed from experience, specific softer leadership behaviours supporting system transformation are both described and reinforced. Further, a matrix combining the LEADS framework capabilities with these more specific behaviours is offered as a planning tool that leaders may reflect upon and map out key activities associated with their sponsorship of significant change...

Eric Wasylenko
The moral divide between proponents and opponents of medical assistance in dying is wide and can be ascribed to a number of dichotomous beliefs. This article addresses a particular and less commonly described platform for the divide: human acquiescence to physical decline and death as an important stage of life, versus presumptive human mastery over the timing and manner of some peoples' death. Practical ideas are then offered for health systems that wish to bridge the divide, to provide both robust palliative end-of-life care and medical assistance in dying programs for their patients, while keeping health workers whole...
