Optimal cancer care pathways

A A

The optimal cancer care pathways for health professionals set out key principles for optimal care at each step of the patient journey from prevention through to survivorship/end of life care.

These clinical guides have been endorsed by the National Cancer Expert Reference Group, Cancer Australia and Cancer Council Australia. 

Patients and their family and carers can use the consumer versions to better understand an often complex health system, and to know what questions to ask of their health professionals to ensure they receive the best care at every step.

Help your patients and their family and carers understand the process they are going through by printing and sharing these guides as appropriate.
