Community services are an increasingly important part of the healthcare landscape. Services that work to empower patients and their caregivers are having a positive impact on health outcomes and helping to reduce per capita costs of healthcare. According to the 2015 Canadian Cancer Statistics Report, by 2030 the annual number of new cancer cases in Canada is expected to increase by 79% . Community-based cancer services, in particular, are urgently required to meet the growing demand for care as the complexity of the disease and its treatment continues to grow.
Les services communautaires jouent un rôle de plus en plus important dans les soins de santé. Les services qui veillent à habiliter les patients et leurs proches aidants ont un effet positif sur les résultats en matière de santé et aident à réduire les coûts par personne des soins de santé. D’ici 2030, le nombre annuel de nouveaux cas de cancer au Canada devrait augmenter de 79 % selon le rapport Statistiques canadiennes sur le cancer 2015 . Des services communautaires pour le traitement du cancer, notamment, sont requis de toute urgence afin de répondre à la demande croissante de soins, alors que la complexité de la maladie et de son traitement ne cesse de croître.
