A multidisciplinary team of staff from Kingston Health Sciences Centre and the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario have won the Lung Cancer Innovation Challenge, and a grand prize of $100,000 from Merck Canada and MaRS Discovery District.

The team, led by Dr. Genevieve Digby and Dr. Christopher Parker, put forward a proposal to expand the model of the existing Lung Diagnostic Assessment Program (LDAP) clinics currently operating out of Hotel Dieu Hospital site to the Lennox and Addington County General Hospital (LACGH) in Napanee.

At the LDAP clinic, patients who have a suspected diagnosis of lung cancer are able to meet with a team of specialists sooner to shorten the time between referral, diagnosis, and ultimately, treatment.

Flu Vaccine and Cancer Treatment

This year, more than ever, it is critical for patients and their families to get the flu shot.

The flu shot is essential in protecting you and your family, and helps to reduce the added burden of influenza on the health care system during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Beginning October 19, patients of the Cancer Centre or Kidney program can get their flu shot at the Lovell Drugs Satellite Clinic on Burr 0 between 9:30am - 1:30pm. No flu shot appointment necessary, just drop in the next time you are in Burr for treatment or a clinic.

Here is more information about getting the flu shot during cancer treatment: https://youtu.be/M5u5o0olX8E

People receiving cancer treatment often wonder if they can get the flu vaccine. This video includes general information about the flu vaccine for people rece...

To recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Shelley Macdonald and her colleagues at the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) have put together an incentive in hopes of encouraging women in need of a mammogram to book their appointments right away.

Anyone who calls during the month of October to book their next mammogram will have their name entered in a draw for the prize pack, which includes gift cards, jewelry, toiletries, comfort items and more.

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Regular screening is important because it can find cancer early when treatment has a better chance of working.

If you are a woman between 50 and 74 years of age, you do not need a referral to make your appointment. Contact the Kingston OBSP site at 613-384-4284 to book your appointment.

An effective new treatment for spinal metastasis, tumours that can develop on the spine, is available for patients in southeastern Ontario.

“Being able to offer this treatment here allows the patient to take less time off work, stay closer to the comforts of home, and save money on the expenses of travelling to a larger city,” Dr. Fabio Ynoe de Moraes says. “These are some real barriers to care that are significantly reduced now that we have this equipment in Kingston.”

Today marks the 30 year anniversary of the first Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) mammogram.

Since the program began, more than 9.1 million mammograms were performed on 2.2 million women ages 50 to 74, and more than 48,000 breast cancers were diagnosed. Over the past 30 years, there has been a significant decrease in the breast cancer mortality rate in Ontario women due to improved treatments and increased participation in breast screening.

Thank you all of our partners and their staff for contributing to the growth of the program and impacting the lives of millions of women across the entire province.

We just want to thank all your wonderful staff that took care of my wife yesterday. She came in for a MUGA scan but her PICC lines were blocked. They tried to free them up with no success. Then they tried finding a vein and that all failed. It was not the fault of the nurses! A decision was made to replace the PICC line and the plan went into action. They tried flushing the lines in IVR also but still nothing. After a very short wait, she was in and in 10 minutes a new line was in. Went back to get the scan done and all went very smooth! We were the last ones there as our scan was completed around 5 pm. May I say that all those we dealt with through this frustrating situation were there with encouragement, big smiles and happy to help! My wife thanks each person that she has contact with because having cancer is no fun, but having caring staff makes this journey easier to travel! Thank you all!
