Reed et al try to answer questions with regard to waiting time for breast cancer treatment in Alberta. After conducting the study, they conclude that only 44% of women had a waiting time of 14 or less as recommended by the Canadian Society for Surgical Oncology. The number of women who will have to wait longer than recommended for treatment will likely increase without significant increase in oncological resources.
