Dr. Krzyzanowska is a medical oncologist and health services researcher at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and a Professor of Medicine at U of T. Her research focuses on the interplay between the science and practice of healthcare quality as it relates to the delivery of cancer care. By combining patient-level studies with population-based research, she is able to look at quality issues from different but complementary perspectives, which have impact at both the micro (institution) as well as macro (population) level and close the loop between quality measurement and improvement.
Dr. Krzyzanowska has held a number of leadership roles related to quality at Cancer Care Ontario, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, University of Toronto and with the American Society of Clinical Oncology. She is an Associate Editor at the Journal of Oncology Practice and the Chair of the 2018 ASCO Quality Care Symposium. Dr. Krzyzanowska obtained her medical degree and clinical training at the University of Toronto then completed a research fellowship at the Centre for Outcomes and Policy Research at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
At the 2018 Annual Day, Dr. Krzyzanowska was promoted to Professor and received the Department of Medicine Award in Quality and Innovation.
