Community Oncology Program of Saskatchewan (COPS) Centres

The Community Oncology Program of Saskatchewan (COPS) is a program of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency coordinated by the Saskatoon Cancer Centre and the Allan Blair Cancer Centre in partnership with hospitals across the province. The primary goal of COPS is to provide cancer patients with care, treatment and support in or near their home communities.

What is a COPS centre?

COPS centres have nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and social workers who are specially trained in providing cancer care. They remain in close contact with the cancer care teams at the Allan Blair Cancer Centre in Regina and the Saskatoon Cancer Centre.

Can I receive cancer treatment in my community?

Some systemic therapy treatments can be given in a COPS centre. Your oncologist or nurse will determine whether you are eligible to receive treatment in a COPS centre and will refer you to the centre nearest your home community.  

What is the role of my family doctor in my COPS treatment?

Your family doctor is an important member of your cancer care team. He or she will be notified when you are to receive treatment at a COPS centre and will receive ongoing communication from your oncologist about your progress. Your family doctor or a designated doctor in the hospital will be available during your treatment in case any concerns arise. Patients who receive their cancer care at a COPS centre will still need to visit their oncologist, who will prescribe treatment and help manage their care.

What services are available at a COPS centre?

Services such as nursing care, blood transfusions, care of your central line and blood work are available at each COPS centre. Support services, such as counseling, dietary, support groups, home care and palliative care may be available in your COPS centre. Check with your COPS team to see which services are offered in your community. Please contact the Saskatoon Cancer Centre or Allan Blair Cancer Centre for services not available in your area.
