Jackie Bender's Story

As a health researcher focused on eHealth innovation and cancer survivorship, and with a strong interest in collaboration, it is a pleasure to be a member of the Canadian ASAP network. My work in prostate cancer aims to improve survivors access to health information and to self-management support using information and communication technologies, as well as to foster partnerships between survivor and health professionals that will enhance care.

The collaborative spirit of the Canadian ASAP network, its connection with similarly minded International groups, and its focus on leveraging the collective strengths of survivors and professionals provide a solid foundation for significant and sustainable change that align strongly with my values.

I have had the opportunity to be a member of other collaborative networks, and I must say that none have listened to and worked with survivors to develop new solutions to the extent that I have witnessed in the ASAP network. I look forward to my continued involvement in the network.
