CBCN Online Survey: Equitable Access to New Drugs for Metastatic Breast Cancer Treatment

The Canadian Breast Cancer Network is concerned about unequal access across Canada to drugs for treatment of metastatic breast cancer. In order to raise awareness of this issue and to improve access to new and existing drugs for metastatic breast cancer, CBCN invites you to provide information through participating in a survey. The information you provide will be used to develop a position so that CBCN can work with partner organizations to raise awareness of the need for equitable access to drug treatments across Canada. All information is anonymous – no individual survey participants will be identified.

If you or a loved one is living with metastatic breast cancer, please take a few minutes to complete this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YSXYHL6

Survey closes on June 8th.
