WAYS TO HELP HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS PATIENTS & FAMILIES SURVIVORS

Pediatric Oncology specialists in Ontario have collaborated closely, since 1983, to deliver the right care at the right time and in the right place for children with cancer and their families. This work has been carried out by Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario (POGO). Through healthcare innovation, survivor care, financial assistance for families, population data, policy development, research and education, POGO has created a highly integrated and seamless pediatric cancer system that supports children and families throughout the spectrum of illness, recovery and survivorship. 

POGO is the official source of advice to the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) on childhood cancer control and gratefully acknowledges Ministry for its financial support for POGO efforts to build an uniquely comprehensive pediatric cancer control system.
