Cancer Care

Island Health has several Community Oncology Networks that partner with BC Cancer Victoria to provide chemotherapy and systemic therapy to community members.

The centre is typically staffed with Medical Oncologists, General Practitioner Oncologists, systemic therapy trained nurses, and Nurse Practitioner Oncologists. The staff are able to manage all types of outpatient IV and oral chemotherapy protocols including first-cycle.

Referring physicians are required to complete a Community Oncology Network referral for the transfer of care.
