Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Program (SMRCP)
Diagnostic Assessment Programs (DAPs)
Diagnostic Assessment Programs are specific to a particular type of suspected cancer. Once referred into a DAP, patients have access to a multidisciplinary care team and aim to provide a single point of contact for diagnostic services, streamlined coordination of diagnostic
tests, streamlined consults, and support for patients throughout the diagnostic process. For more information on Diagnostic Assessment Programs please visit Cancer Care Ontario Diagnostic Assessment Programs
