Pancreatic Cancer Survey ~ Please Consider Participating!


Please Share your Experience!  

Details of Survey


Pancreatic Cancer Canada and Craig’s Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society are partnering with Celgene Canada conducting a survey to better understand the experiences of pancreatic cancer patients and their caregivers. As you are probably aware, pancreatic cancer education and PR activities are making significant progress but still lag behind other types of cancer in the public sphere. The needs and concerns of patients and their loved ones are uniquely challenging, and we are seeking to gain information in order to better highlight those areas through this research. We believe that the best way to publicize the unique challenges faced by those touched by pancreatic cancer is to learn about treatment decisions, specific concerns, and types of support directly from individuals like you.

Your collaboration is extremely important to us. We are inviting you to participate by completing this online survey. Your responses ensure that we will hear from a variety of voices on several topics related to managing this disease.

This survey is completely anonymous. Please be assured that Celgene and its research partner will report all data in aggregate and will not attribute any information to participants by name or other identifiable indicators.

The survey, a mixture of multiple choice and open response questions, will take approximately 25 minutes to complete. We encourage you to share your perspective by following this link at your earliest convenience. Please feel free to contact KRC Research ( with any questions or concerns about this research. Thank you for your time and your valuable insight.

The Colleen Elliott Award Winner: Scott Hurton

Established in 2011, the Colleen Elliott Award was created to honour excellence in cancer research training and is awarded to a research trainee who demonstrates the greatest promise and potential for excellence in cancer research.

The work of this year's recipient, Scott Hurton, addresses the model of care for patients with pancreatic cancer, with the ultimate goal to improve patient outcomes. His study examines the outcomes of patients affected by all stages of pancreatic cancer.

This provides an opportunity to make a significant contribution to understanding how pancreatic cancer patients are treated in Nova Scotia. The outcomes of Scott’s project will provide an invaluable contribution to advance the quality of care of pancreatic cancer in Canada.

Scott Hurton's research has been funded by Craig's Cause Pancreatic Cancer Sociey and Beatrice Hunter in a joint partnership. We are so proud of Scott's success!
