In providing cancer care to the residents of Manitoba, the development of Regional Cancer Program hubs strives to ensure all patients receive timely and appropriate access to quality care and improved coordination of this care.

Through Regional Cancer Program hub services, Primary Care physicians and surgeons, among other health care providers, receive expert support from the Navigation Teams which include Family Physicians in Oncology, Surgical Lead in Oncology, Nurse Navigators, Oncology Social Workers (Psychosocial Oncology Clinicians) and Registered Dietitians. Oncology is the often complex work up and diagnosis of a suspected cancer.
Regional Cancer Program hubs are modeled to meet the needs of patients suspected of having cancer and patients having received a cancer diagnosis. The work of the Regional Cancer Program hubs directly influences and strengthens the goals and deliverables of IN SIXTY, Cancer Patient Journey Initiative.
Cancer Navigation services facilitate timely and appropriate access to the cancer care system and can guide and support cancer patients and their families through the entire cancer journey. The Navigation Team works closely with the entire health care team to coordinate care and help patients access referrals, resources, and other helpful supports.
Primary Care providers or any other health care professional can refer patients to Navigation Services.
- Patients and families can also contact the Navigation Services directly for more information about a cancer diagnosis, treatment or follow up care.
