Clinician Participation in the pCODR Process

The CADTH pan-Canadian Oncology Drug Review (pCODR) reviews cancer drugs and provides funding recommendations to Canada’s provinces and territories (except Quebec). Funders use this information in their decision-making process to determine if a drug will be eligible for public reimbursement.

Learn more about the value of clinician input to the pCODR process from Dr. Joseph Connors: Clinician Participation in the pCODR Process

Input from registered clinicians (practising oncologists or physicians who treat cancer patients, oncology pharmacists, oncology nurses) is collected to gain insight into local clinical practices and identify areas of unmet need. Oncologists or physicians who treat cancer patients can provide their input as an individual submission or jointly in a group submission. Oncology pharmacists and oncology nurses provide invaluable information on drug preparation and administration, and are eligible to provide input as part of a joint submission with a lead oncologist.

Consult our FACT SHEET for information on how to register and provide input and feedback as a clinician.
