The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care (CTFPHC) is updating its national breast cancer screening guideline that was last published in 2018. The Task Force prioritizes patient involvement in various stages of the guideline development process to ensure guidelines are patient-centered and patient-informed.

We are recruiting patient partners to sit on the breast cancer guideline working group for 2023/2024.

Who should apply?

  • Women* with and without lived experience of breast cancer, who are comfortable reading and speaking English, and who have experience as a patient partner in research or on a guideline development committee.

Appointed patient partners will need to attend bi-monthly working group meetings to give feedback and insights to help the Task Force working group shape recommendations, considering patient values and preferences.

If you, or someone you know, is interested, please contact for more information.

*The CTFPHC breast cancer working group welcomes all women to participate, including transwomen, cis-women and individuals assigned female at birth.
