Chemotherapy Outreach Program (COPS)
- Melfort Hospital, Nipawin Hospital and Tisdale Hospital
COPS is a program of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency and is co-ordinated by the Saskatoon Cancer Centre and the Allan Blair Cancer Centre in partnership with Regional Health Authorities. COPS centres located in Melfort, Nipawin and Tisdale may provide patients with cancer care closer to home, reducing the need to travel great distances to Saskatoon or Regina.
The COPS centres have nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and social workers who are specially trained in providing cancer care. The overall management and prescribing of treatments remains the responsibility of the oncologists.
Health Centres are located in the communities of Arborfield, Carrot River, Cumberland House, Smeaton, and Rose Valley. There is an outpatient clinic held in these facilities as well as lab services. Radiology services are available at Carrot River only.
