OncoSim fact sheets

These fact sheets are summaries of the OncoSim models that describe how the models work and what capabilities they have

OncoSim-Overview

OncoSim-Overview

File size 6 MB

OncoSim projects cancer burden and attributes the burden to 27 risk factors, such as smoking and inadequate physical activity. It currently models four cancer sites (breast, cervicalcolorectal and lung) and related screening programs in detail, and it provides high-level projections for 28 other cancer sites.


icon breastOncoSim-Breast

OncoSim-Breast is a mathematical simulation tool for breast cancer, modelling the cancer’s natural history and progression. The model reflects disease progression and clinical treatments based on current knowledge and evidence-based Canadian practices.

Using OncoSim-Breast, users can estimate the economic burden of breast cancer and the impact of interventions on breast cancer-related outcomes. For example, users will be able to:

  • Compare breast cancer screening strategies
  • Vary screening age, intervals and follow-up protocols
  • Assess quality improvement initiatives related to breast cancer screening

OncoSim-Cervical

OncoSim-Cervical is a mathematical simulation tool for cervical cancer. The model reflects cervical cancer’s progression and clinical treatments based on current knowledge and evidence-based Canadian practices.

Using OncoSim-Cervical, users can estimate the economic burden of cervical cancer and the impact of interventions on cervical cancer-related outcomes. For examples user will be able to:

  • Evaluate the impact of different cervical cancer screening (e.g. Pap vs HPV testing)
  • Vary age and screening intervals
  • Compare varying HPV vaccination strategies using quadrivalent and the nonavalent vaccine

Access resources that used OncoSim for cervical cancer analyses.

icon colorectalOncoSim-Colorectal

OncoSim-Colorectal is a mathematical simulation tool for colorectal cancer, modelling the cancer’s and adenomas’ natural history and progression. The model reflects disease progression and clinical treatments based on current knowledge and evidence-based Canadian practices.

Using OncoSim-Colorectal, users can evaluate the effects of interventions to reduce colorectal cancer’s impact, such as screening programs, quality initiatives and new treatments. For example, users will be able to:

  • Compare and assess the impact of different screening methods (fecal tests, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy)
  • Vary age and screening intervals
  • Assess how screening can vary with family history

icon lungOncoSim-Lung

OncoSim-Lung is a mathematical simulation tool for lung cancer. The model reflects lung cancer’s progression and clinical treatments based on current knowledge and evidence-based Canadian practices.

Using OncoSim-Lung, users can estimate the economic burden of lung cancer and the impact of interventions on lung cancer-related outcomes. For example, users will be able to:

  • Assess the impact of smoking cessation programs
  • Evaluate lung cancer screening strategies and new lung cancer treatment options
  • Assess interventions to reduce radon exposure

Access resources that used OncoSim for lung cancer analyses.
