Your Symptoms Matter: How are you feeling?

After checking in at reception, please take a moment to complete Symptom Screening at one of the kiosks. You will be asked questions about your symptoms, such as your pain, your appetite and your wellbeing. Your responses will help the healthcare team understand how you are feeling at today's visit and to track changes over time so that your symptoms can be managed appropriately.

The "Your Symptoms Matter" survey was designed by Cancer Care Ontario to help assist conversations with your care team.
