Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center Committee

The American College of Surgeons requires hospitals that provide cancer care, including The University of Toledo Medical Center, to form a cancer committee.

The Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center’s Cancer Committee meets regularly to review and advance our cancer care. The purpose of our Cancer Committee is to:

  • Discuss and evaluate diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, follow-up and end result reporting of our cancer care
  • Supervise the quality of our patient care
  • Organize, publicize, conduct and evaluate regular educational and consultative patient-oriented cancer conferences
  • Assure that consultative services from all major disciplines are available to every patient
  • Confirm that cancer rehabilitation services are available and used
  • Encourage a supportive care system for all patients with cancer
  • Maintain a comprehensive system for collecting and utilizing data, including tumor incidence, epidemiology and end results
  • Maintain an appropriate cancer registry system, which conforms to the standards of the American College of Surgeons
  • Publish and distribute the annual report
