Patient and Family Conference

CancerCare Manitoba is pleased to offer the Patient and Family Conference as a learning opportunity for cancer patients, their family and friends, in Manitoba and the Kivalliq region of Nunavut. This is a virtual educational event which features a keynote address, numerous conference sessions, and booths with more information about CancerCare Manitoba services and supports.

The first Patient and Family Conference was held virtually by CancerCare Manitoba on November 25-26, 2022. This event featured Catherine Wreford, cancer warrior and winner of Amazing Race Canada, as the keynote presenter. It also included sessions covering a variety of topics, including cancer treatments and side-effects, managing pain and medical cannabis, anxiety, nutrition, identity and many more. We heard from different health care providers, including doctors, nurses, counsellors—and from patients.
