Dear Dr. ________,

Re: your patient:

Ms/Mr. _________  has asked us to inform you of your patient's participation in CAREpath’s cancer assistance program. We have assigned your patient a nurse case manager, backed up by an experienced oncologist, to navigate your patient through the initial course of cancer treatment. Our service is provided to your patient through third party coverage.

CAREpath is focused on ensuring that clients receive the best evidence-based cancer treatment. We follow a set of national oncology guidelines which have been reviewed by our National Medical Advisory Board comprised of Canadian oncology leaders. We may also suggest access to complementary therapy where deemed appropriate, but do not advocate alternative medicine.

When navigation through the initial course of treatment has been completed we provide the cancer survivor with evidence-based information to reduce both the risk of recurrence and the risk of delayed treatment side effects.

Ms /Mr. ___________  has been advised to review with you our recommendations and to obtain your advice with regard to implementing them. For further information please feel free to call us.

We will be providing a summary of the treatment course, recommendation and follow-up plan, and may contact you if/when assistance is required.

We have emphasized to your client that you will continue to provide them with ongoing primary care and we look forward to working with you in a collaborative role to maintain the health of your patient. Please let us know how we can help.
Yours sincerely,

Wm. Hryniuk, MD, FRCP (C),
Medical Director, CAREpath Inc.
