NSW Cancer Plan 2016-2020 (Public Consultation Draft) - Your invitation to provide feedback
This draft has been developed following a substantial consultation process on key areas of cancer control in NSW with a range of partners and stakeholders. The 2016-2020 Cancer Plan will continue to focus on:
- reducing the incidence of cancer
- improving the survival of people with cancer
- improving the quality of life of people with cancer
The draft plan also highlights the importance of focusing attention on priority populations and priority cancers to improve cancer outcomes and lessen the gap for groups within the community who experience poorer outcomes.
Please provide your comments and feedback on the draft plan via the online survey by 30th October 2015.
The Cancer Institute NSW is undertaking work to investigate the feasibility of identifying a cancer recurrence or progression from administrative data collections such as the NSW Cancer Registry. For further information click here and if you are interested in collaborating with us on this work please contact email@example.com by 29th October 2015.
