Project Description

Shared care models between cancer specialists and primary care providers are recognized to benefit survivors, carers, clinicians and the health system in managing cancer survivorship needs. Shared care is especially important for rural populations who experience poor access to oncology services. This project will establish a survivorship program in the Gippsland region. Its focus will be on establishing the processes, infrastructure and communication pathways to support the program, and education for survivors and clinicians which aligns with chronic disease self-management frameworks.
