The purpose of the OICR-CCO Health Services Research Program is to enhance Ontario’s capacity to study the organization and delivery of cancer services across the province. The program aims to improve the quality and availability of new data about Ontario's health care system, to attract qualified researchers to Ontario, and to facilitate new studies addressing access, quality, cost, and outcomes of cancer care. The Health Services Research Program aims to inform health policies, optimize the delivery of cancer care and maximize the benefits of the province's cancer research for those currently living with the disease.
