Details

The aim of the research “Innovations in cancer services to improve outcomes in Indigenous cancer patients” is to identify and describe the innovations that are working to optimise delivery of cancer treatment to Aboriginal Australians.

The gaps in diagnosis, treatment and survival indicate that most current programs and models of service delivery do not meet the needs of Aboriginal Australians with cancer. However some cancer services have made innovations which may contribute to better models of care.

To encourage improvements in cancer service delivery models nationally, this project aims to comprehensively assess what is presently available, what works when and for whom, and what is needed for optimal cancer service delivery to Aboriginal people.
