Prostate Cancer Overview
The following graphs provide an overview of performance and quality along the prostate cancer care continuum.
Overall, Ontario’s cancer system as a whole is performing well on prostate cancer care compared with other jurisdictions nationally and internationally. For highlights of bright spots and opportunities to help focus efforts in improving the quality of care delivery for people with prostate cancer, see Prostate Cancer in Ontario.
Future editions of the Cancer System Quality Index will include additional prostate cancer indicators (see Indicators Under Development) to ensure the index is robust and fully represents a high-performing cancer system.
