As the founding sponsor of the Canadian Bladder Cancer Information System (CBCIS), Bladder Cancer Canada has provided $225,000 since 2014 to help launch this project.
The CBCIS will improve the management of bladder cancer patients by serving as a Canadian multidisciplinary and multi-centre platform and resource. It will capture contemporary management, practice patterns and outcomes across the entire spectrum of bladder cancer in Canada.
Over the next several years, CBCIS will become a rich repository to find answers to important questions about the clinical management of bladder cancer. The CBCIS will collect information on patients at multiple centres across Canada. Follow-up data will be collected prospectively during the course of their bladder cancer.
CBCIS is enrolling patients actively in many centres below with all of them coming on board by early 2017.
