Cancer Care Ontario has compiled more than 30 years of data from the Ontario Cancer Registry to produce the Ontario Cancer Statistics (OCS) 2016 report. In this first comprehensive look, OCS 2016 provides a clear picture of cancer in Ontario, focusing on the incidence, mortality, survival and prevalence of the disease. 

This technical report is a user-friendly knowledge product which was developed by a multidisciplinary team with leadership from an epidemiologist and knowledge translation specialist.   

In this session, the presenters will discuss both the analytics and knowledge translation activities that were undertaken to produce this report— all the way from design and development to dissemination and evaluation. The presenters will seek audience feedback and participation in this interactive session which will help to inform the next report.
