The Partnership is seeking to procure the services of a consultant or consulting firm to plan and execute a pan-Canadian review of the “impact” of knowledge translation efforts related to the System Performance Initiative. The review will:

  • identify the stakeholders currently being reached through the System Performance Initiative’s body of knowledge;
  • among stakeholders who are using the system performance body of knowledge, assess the “impact” (i.e. use of the information to achieve system-level action) this use has had on cancer control within their area of influence;
  • identify the different stakeholders across Canada who could benefit from the evolving body of system performance knowledge but are not fully accessing and/or using this knowledge; and
  • explore what can be done to enhance the relevance and strengthen the impact of system performance information, including the identification of knowledge translation enablers, barriers, opportunities and approaches.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED PROCUREMENTNational Infrastructure for the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project (CPTP)

Notice of Proposed Procurement No:

NPP440-2013-03

Issue Date:

Monday, November 4, 2013

Closing deadline:

Wednesday, November 20, 2013 by 3:00pm   ET

Proposal content last updated on: November 14, 2013

The vision of the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project is to create a very large, high quality ‘population laboratory’ to support leading edge Canadian and international trans-disciplinary health and chronic disease research for decades to come. The project is being designed such that a large group of Canadian adults (the “Cohort”) will be followed over an extended period of time, to allow researchers to begin to correlate genetic, environmental, occupational, lifestyle and socio-economic factors with disease outcomes. Currently, five regions in Canada are registering participants and collecting data and samples in anticipation of the National Infrastructure being established. To realize the potential of the CPTP, researchers will require access to data and samples. The Partnership is responsible for development of a National Infrastructure. The access management portal will act as a single point of access to anyone wishing to conduct research using CPTP data. This portal will interface with the central data repository and a bio-repository.

Project Objectives/Purpose

The RFP is needed to undertake a second phase of work in relation to the Classification of Benign Polyps for the Colorectal Cancer Screening Initiative; a phase that will focus on measurement of current impact of the Classification, further implementation and uptake, sustainability and ongoing evaluation.

The goal of this initiative, as stated at the outset, is uniform reporting of polyps to support quality improvement.

Project Scope

High level deliverables for this RFP are:

1. Survey pathologists across Canada to:

 Establish a baseline of current uptake and use of the Classification

 Examine activities that support behavior change and adoption

 Become aware of what pathologist require in order to move forward with an adoption plan

2. Prepare a comprehensive report outlining the points above

3. Make recommendations for an action plan to support full adoption of the Classification.

There is a need for content expertise and a level of understanding of the background, current issues and potential challenges of this project, as well as to effectively engage pathologists across Canada.

The survey itself should be unique in its approach to obtain accurate and in-depth information on the points outlined above.


RP431-2013-01 – Accelerated Diffusion of Strategic Quality Initiatives for Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer – Awarded to McMaster University

RFP No. RP431-2013-01
Issue date: Monday, June 24, 2013
Deadline for applicant enquiries: Monday, September 2, 2013
Deadline for issuing addenda & responses to applicant enquiries: Monday, September 9, 2013
Proposal submission deadline: Monday, September 16, 2013 before 5:00pm ET
Applicant enquiries ONLY by email to: procurement@partnershipagainstcancer.ca

** Applicants must reference this RFP number (RFP No. RP431-2013-01) in the subject line of their correspondence.**

This RFP seeks to identify and support projects with a coordinated strategy for multi-jurisdictional (preferably pan-Canadian) implementation of effective QI that will have high impact for Canadians. We use this concept to define accelerated implementation diffusion of QI, which is the fundamental objective of this RFP.

Eligible QI proposals will be considered within two broad priority areas: (1) improving the process of cancer diagnosis; and (2) improving the quality of curative-intent treatment delivery.  Further details of the broad priority areas are provided below. Please note the examples are intended to provide context and understanding, and are not in any way meant to be prescriptive.

  1. 1.   Process of cancer diagnosis

This broad area includes initiatives to improve accuracy, completeness and/or timeliness of cancer diagnosis. QI incorporating cancer screening as a component will be considered, although this opportunity is not intended to support QI that are limited to cancer screening.  Examples of RFP applications may address (but are not limited to) issues such as:

a)   Targeted, second opinion/pathology review

b)   Multidisciplinary diagnostic assessment unit roll-out

c)    Access to, and/or quality of, critical diagnostic procedure(s) or process(es)

d)   Use of appropriate site and stage-specific staging investigations

e)   Primary care-focused strategy to improve timely diagnosis

  1. 2.   Curative-intent cancer treatment delivery

This broad area includes initiatives to increase use of high value curative-intent primary and/or (neo) adjuvant therapies that have clear evidence of an outcome benefit. Such initiatives may target a gap between the known efficacy of a treatment and its actual uptake in the cancer system (effectiveness), or it may focus on improving quality of a specific cancer therapy. Similarly, multidisciplinary QI that include a significant process re-engineering/re-mapping to narrow the gap between efficacy to effectiveness would also be eligible. Examples of RFP applications may address (but are not limited to) issues such as:

a)   Adjuvant systemic  following surgical resection (e.g. lung cancer, breast cancer)

b)   Neoadjuvant chemo-radiation for stage II/III rectal cancer

c)    Total mesorectal excision for rectal cancer

d)   Cancer-system approach to implementing Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) delivery

Information gathering opportunity will expire May 20, 2013

RFP No. RP430-2013-01  – For Discussion Paper on the Approach to High-Risk, Resource-Intense Cancer Surgery in Canada - under evaluation

RFP No: RP430-2013-01
Issue date: Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Deadline for proponent enquiries: Friday, July 5, 2013 at 5:00pm EDT
Deadline for issuing addenda & responses to proponent enquiries: Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 5:00pm EDT
Proposal submission deadline: Friday, July 26, 2013 at 3:00pm EDT

The discussion paper on the approach to high-risk, resource-intense cancer surgery in Canada is the first in a series of discussion papers that are included in the new quality implementation initiative at the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC).

The initiative is part of CPAC’s strategic priority to advance high-quality early detection and clinical care by facilitating the development of innovative and high-impact strategies to advance timely and accurate diagnosis and access to high-quality care. http://www.partnershipagainstcancer.ca/wp-content/uploads/Sustaining-Action-Toward-a-Shared-Vision-Full-Document.pdf

The primary intention of the development of the discussion papers is to examine areas of priority importance in cancer diagnosis and care investment in the near future, and to consider whether some planning that occurs at a pan-Canadian level would be beneficial to efficient resource planning, quality assurance, and quality improvement in patient outcomes.

A key requirement is the use of a deliberative engagement process to engage the public and patients respectively in examining the impact of proposed responses to the issue, exploring explicitly how the public weighs the value of treatment close to home with the quality, safety and survival issues that could be addressed with more centralized care.

Objectives/Purpose

The purpose of the high-risk, resource-intense cancer surgery discussion paper is to understand the current practice and implications for decision making, from the patient, provider and policy maker’s perspective. The focus will be highly-specialized surgical procedures where regionalization of services may improve patient outcomes but may also decrease geographical access, thus exploring the tradeoff between access and quality.


CP350-2013-01 -First Nations, Inuit and Métis Cancer Control Initiative: Advancing Improvements in Continuity of Care for First Nations, Inuit and Métis Patients in Rural and Remote Communities

To advance improvements in the continuity of care, in a culturally responsive and safe way, particularly for and with First Nations, Inuit and Métis cancer patients residing in rural, remote and isolated communities.

The First Nations, Inuit and Métis Cancer Control Initiative will have a primary focus on access to care in rural and remote communities; and advancing patient identification, with both the past and current activities in other areas of the Action Plan being used to enable the initiative. More specifically, it will focus on the journey from cancer diagnosis through to patient discharge emphasizing how supports are provided at the time of receiving diagnosis, and at the points in care where patients are returning from treatment facilities to their home community.

Call for Proposals – CP450-2013-01 – For Palliative and End-of-Life Care Initiative

This “Call for Proposals” is intended to accelerate the implementation of effective PEOLC across Canada.  Specifically, it is targeting improvements in the ability for patients and families to be well prepared for and supported in receiving care within their community.  By this, we mean decreasing the time that patients are receiving care in hospital for the terminal phases of care, and ensuring community- based care so that patients and their families feel supported throughout the journey, including those living in rural and remote settings.  Addressing these issues will require collaboration among providers across care settings within and at times across jurisdictions, and assessing processes to work with and prepare patients and families for care.

RFP No.RP460-2013-02 For 2013 and 2014 Cancer System Performance Reports Design 

The objective of the System Performance Initiative (the Initiative) at the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer is to facilitate the exchange of information through reporting on cancer control indicators in Canada across provincial jurisdictions and throughout the cancer control continuum. To do so, the Initiative has, since 2008, worked with others within the Partnership as well as Statistics Canada, the C17 Council, the Canadian Institute for Health Information, the Canadian Cancer Research Alliance and the provincial cancer agencies or their equivalents in order to generate reports. These reports are geared toward members of the cancer control community throughout Canada, as well as the informed public via the Partnership’s website.
