The ACTT Clinic provides comprehensive cancer survivorship care to women and men who have completed their cancer treatment at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and/or Women’s College Hospital and are now cancer free. To be seen at the ACTT clinic, patients need to be referred by the doctors who treated their cancer.

These are the types of cancer that are seen at the ACTT clinic:

  • breast cancer
  • thyroid cancer
  • gynecological cancer (e.g. uterine, cervical, ovarian cancer)
  • melanoma
  • gastrointestinal (e.g. colon, rectal cancer)
  • testicular cancer

Patients are followed up in this clinic for a limited amount of time depending on their needs, treatment, and surveillance plan. Eventually, patients are transitioned from the ACTT team to their primary care practitioners when appropriate as per evidence-based guidelines and protocols. When a recurrence is detected, the ACTT team facilitates investigations and referrals back to the treating oncologists in a timely manner. 

Forms

The ACTT Clinic is currently operating as a special project in partnership with Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. For this reason, the program is only accepting patients from Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and Women’s College Hospital who have completed treatment for cancer, excepting hormonal therapy. Patients are transferred to this clinic based on specific criteria by their oncologists or treating endocrinologist for thyroid cancer. At this time, we are not accepting referrals from patients being followed at other cancer centres outside of Women’s College Hospital and Princess Margaret Hospital.

Patients discharged from ACTT clinic to their family practitioners can be referred back if there are any new concerns related to their previous cancer. The family care practitioners of patients discharged from ACTT are welcome to contact us with questions or concerns related to patients post discharge. 

If you have been referred to ACTT and have not been contacted with an appointment in 2-3 weeks, please call us at 416 323 6400 ext 3297. You may be contacted prior to your first visit to organize surveillance tests for your clinic appointment.
