Our team

Started by a small group of pathologists in Ottawa, Ontario Canada, our team has grown to include a diverse group of pathologists, patients, care givers, advocates, and resident doctors from across Canada. Our team based approach encourages collaboration between doctors and patients as we continually work to improve the resources we provide.

The articles on MyPathologyReport are co-developed by pathologists and patients. After a topic is selected, an initial draft is written by a pathologist with expertise in the topic area. The draft is then reviewed by members of the editorial board to ensure that the article meets our standards for quality and style. The revised draft is then circulated to our patient advisers who provide feedback and suggestions to improve the article. Patient suggestions are incorporated prior to the final article going online. Our lead patient adviser is Ms. Sue Peters.
