APCaRI members participate in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer

Well, we did it!  Several APCaRI members participated in a 2-day major cycling event called the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation. We cycled 228 kms over 2 days along the majestic Rockies with thousands of other Riders, supported by an amazing team of volunteers. Riding along with 34 members of the Cross Cancer Institute Team, and 1741 riders in total, it was an epic experience! The weather could not have been better, it was sunny, warm and the scenery was amazing.
Most importantly, we raised $7.8M to support cutting edge cancer research in Alberta. We are very thankful for the support we received, which will help us to beat prostate cancer.

If you didn’t get a chance to support one of our riders, please consider contributing to the team’s efforts at our DONATE page.

APCaRI is part of the Movember Prostate Cancer Outcomes network

The Prostate Cancer Outcomes Global Initiative to Compare and Reduce Variation is a project led by Movember aiming to improve health outcomes for men throughout their prostate cancer journey by focusing on variation in care and engaging clinicians and researchers across 14 countries worldwide.

The international team will collect data from prostate cancer patients segmented into the categories of data items as outlined by the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM). These include patient factors, baseline tumor factors, pathological information, treatment variables, acute complications of treatment, and survival and disease control).

The Alberta Prostate Cancer dataset is highly aligned with the ICHOM standards. This means that we can effectively compare treatments and outcomes in Alberta with teams around the world to find ways to improve our care at home and abroad!

This is the result of hours of planning and true team work lead by Dr. Trafford Crump, the APCaRI Scientific and Data Quality Committee, and the APCaRI clinical, scientific, research and pathology teams. Thanks to your efforts, we are one step closer to improving patient outcomes.
