As the founding sponsor of the Canadian Bladder Cancer Information System (CBCIS), Bladder Cancer Canada has provided $350,000 since 2014 to help launch this project.
CBCIS is a database that collects depersonalized information about current bladder cancer practice and treatment outcomes across many Health Centres in Canada. The CBCIS will improve the management of bladder cancer patients by serving as a Canadian multidisciplinary and multi-centre database platform and resource. It will capture contemporary management, practice patterns and outcomes across the entire spectrum of bladder cancer patients.
Over the next several years, CBCIS will become a rich repository to find answers to important questions about the clinical management of bladder cancer.
CBCIS has been actively enrolling patients in many Canadian centres (see map below for locations). As of early 2018, almost 1200 patients have been enrolled in the database.
