Today marked the release of the POWER Study Cancer Chapter, part of a provincial Report on women's health which can be used as an evidence-based tool to help policy-makers, health care providers and consumers improve the health of, and reducing inequities among the women of Ontario. The main findings is that income matters when it comes to incidence, survival and cancer screening but not so much for treatment. We need to look at follow-up after women receive an abnormal test result, not just how many women show up for screening in the first place. Gender didn’t seem to be very important in terms of cancer care, but age was definitely found to be an important determinant of treatment, with older women being less likely to receive treatment than younger women. Targeted interventions to more vulnerable groups are key, which in turn is based on high-quality gender and equity analysis. We can’t do this alone, so we need to work in partnerships.
