The Community Oncology Program of Saskatchewan
The Community Oncology Program of Saskatchewan (COPS) is a program of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. The primary goal of the COPS program is to treat patients close to their home communities. This reduces the need to travel great distances and allows some patients to be treated in a more familiar and emotionally supportive setting.
Besides meeting cancer treatment needs, the COPS program offers supportive and palliative care, symptom management, psychosocial support and patient education.
In the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region, the COPS program is coordinated by the Allan Blair Cancer Centre and the Region. Currently, the COPS program is available in Moosomin.
If you are having cancer treatment on the COPS program, your treatment is managed by your medical oncologist. RQHR staff, trained by the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency, administer your treatment in close collaboration with Cancer Agency physicians, nurses and pharmacists.
