The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer has recently launched a new website for Canadians at www.cancerview.ca which offers a centralized resource for learning about the latest cancer clinical trials or connecting with other patients suffering from the same disease.

The new portal offers a wealth of information and resources to patients, healthcare workers, and anyone who may be dealing with some form of cancer. The website is unique because it enables users to access a number of different resources and perspectives all in one location.

The website offers users a trustworthy source of information as opposed to searching results which may or may not be useful and credible.

Among the resources available on the new portal include: access to Canada’s cancer trial database, online and telephone directory services, a community service locator which allows users to find patient services and support programs in their area.

Currently there are over 640 clinical trials being conducted which are posted and accessible to patients using the site.
