Patient Education

The ACTION Centre has provided monthly Patient Education classes on integrative oncology and complementary therapies since 2012, developed and led by Dr. Carlson, as part of the TBCC Cancer Care patient education program series. Since COVID closed down many of our services in 2020, these classes have not been provided, as they had been held in person. We have partnered with AHS Cancer Care and plan to reinstate these classes as soon as possible, potentially as online classes through zoom video conferencing. Please check back at this link for updates and to sign up for classes when they become available.
