CAMP PODS is a webinar series, consisting of nine one-hour sessions that will take place from February to November 2024 on the 1st Thursday of each month.

The goal of this series is to build a strong Oncology Laboratory Medicine community, where best practices and common challenges can be discussed.  Insights gained will be key to implement across Canada and will help streamline laboratory workflows and practice for laboratory medicine, the end result of which will be improvements in the patient journey.

Overall Learning Objectives:

By the end of the webinar series, an audience member will:

  1. Establish a strong Oncology Education Network
  2. Compare ideas, thoughts and common challenges
  3. Identify gaps and find team solutions for improving patient care
  4. Integrate pathology and oncology practices
