How We Report Systemic Wait Times
 

Cancer Care Ontario reports systemic treatment wait times information monthly for Ontario, by regional cancer centre, and by type of cancer. Wait Times are updated monthly.

You can view wait times according to two indicators:

1) Wait Times by target for "Referral to Consult" and
2) Wait Times by target for "Consult to Treatment"

Wait Times by Target (14 days) – Referral to Consult
The proportion of patients who are receiving services within the recommended timeframe or target (14 days) for the interval of "Referral to Consult."

Referral to Consult: The time between a referral to a specialist to the time that specialist consults with the patient

Wait Times by Target (28 days) – Consult to Treatment
The proportion of patients who are receiving services within the recommended timeframe or target (28 days) for the interval of "Consult to Treatment."

Consult to Treatment: The time between a specialist consult with the patient and the time the patient receives his or her first chemotherapy treatment.
