Project: Utilization patterns and presenting diagnosis of oncology patients to Saskatoon emergency rooms: improving access to alternate sources of care

In Dr. Dueck’s CQIP project, she found that 56% of oncology patients who presented to Emergency Rooms (ER) during a one-year period in Saskatoon with side effects from chemotherapy and radiation did not require admission to the hospital. Dr. Dueck’s aim was to determine the medical diagnosis and utilization patterns and to see if there was an alternative care access that would reduce the ER burden, as well as improve the experience, care and quality of life for oncology patients.COpy and past teh project description from the old site
