Cancercare was a great place to work. You went home at night knowing you were part of a great Team in helping to better people's lives.
Communications Clerk (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB28 May 2014
There was no real "typical" day at work. Everyday was different depending on the individual needs and requirements of our patients. The only "typical" day was every morning going to my office and turning on my computer and seeing what the day was going to bring. Changes were constant and your day could be directed entirely in a different direction if a STAT arose. Your other work had to be done, so you would adjust and find a way to get all the clients needs done. Management was not watching what you got done and if you got it done because it would be. I knew I was working for the benefit of the health of individuals, and this would be enough incentive to achieve to my 110%.
The Management at Cancercare had an open-door policy. They were there to guide and help you when you needed it. Guide lines for Treatments were constantly changing as per RO due to Clinical Trials, and Management would pre-warn us of the changes and walk us through it before the start date.
My co-workers at Cancercare were extraordinary. Now the World is not perfect, but I would have to say that 98% of the employees were all there for the same reason - for the benefit of improving the health of our patients. Therefore we all work as a Team to achieve this goal.
I would have to say the hardest part of the job was when a small child comes in and we know we are doing pain relief only.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when a patient comes back to visit after his last follow-up visit and says the treatments worked and they are either cancer free or in remission. You know then that you were part
  more... of a Team of individuals all doing their part in improving this person's quality of life.  less
