The Breast Assessment Program (BAP) is a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals providing services in diagnostic imaging, surgical consultation and intervention, nursing services along with access to social work, pastoral care and nutritional services. Our goal is to provide patients with timely access from detection of a breast abnormality to diagnosis and treatment. BAP is a single access point to care providing supportive patient and family centered care, patient navigation, co-ordination of care and health teaching to help patients make informed treatment decisions.
Referrals to BAP
You can be referred to the Breast Assessment Program either by your family physician or the Ontario Breast Screening Program. Once a referral is made, an appointment will be scheduled for you to come to the Hotel Dieu site for your initial appointment.
