  • Pharmacare Now

    The coalition of national and provincial organizations led by the canadian labour congress and the Canadian Health Coalition is calling on the new government to immediately implement universal, public pharmacare. The coalition represents health care providers, non-profit organizations, unions, workers, seniors, patients and academics from across the country.


    The coalition is urging all parties to work together in the interest of the population of Canada to ensure that a comprehensive pharmacare plan gets adopted within this government’s mandate. This essential new program should be based on the Pharmacare Consensus Principles, which have been endorsed by more than 80 organizations and which were reflected in the recommendations of the Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare. This program should be public, universal, comprehensive, accessible and portable. Canada needs pharmacare now! To learn more visit: https://www.healthcoalition.ca/pharmacare/Participate Now

  • Help the WHO test and improve the MedSafe app!

    The MedSafe app, an initiative of the World Health Organization, seeks to educate patients and the general public through the 5 key moments where your action can reduce the risk of medication-related harm. The app is free and could be very helpful to patients. In order to help, simply download the app from the App Store or Google Play Store, and leave a review once you've used it.

  • Take part in research to advance the science of cancer survivorship!

    A national research team is being formed in response to a call for proposals in Cancer Survivorship from the Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). If you are a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with lymphoma, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, or head and neck cancer within the last 5 years, you are eligible to participate in this research initiative. Cancer survivors provide a unique perspective, which can help inform this committee of recommendations for cancer rehabilitation.Participate Now

It proved a little bit uncomfortable, however, it was necessary to check the health of the prostate. After his August 2017 exam in his 72nd year, his GP suggested follow-up with a Urologist, as something didn’t feel right. The Urologist confirmed his fears when he

The Face of Prostate Cancer: Paul’s Story

Paul Mayotte was much like most men his age, healthy, happy and ready to embrace retirement. He began the yearly check-ups with his doctor when he turned 50 and also began the PSA test (Prostate-Specific Antigen) to establish a baseline for potential prostate problems.
