Regional shared care

Between 30% and 40% of children and adolescents treated by the Children’s Cancer Centres at the Royal Children’s Hospital and Monash Children’s Hospital are from regional areas. The Regional Outreach and Shared Care Program (ROSCP), is a PICS program that facilitates the transition between the metropolitan primary treating hospital and regional shared care centres for children and adolescents with cancer.

The program provides opportunities for shared care and ensures there are agreed levels of training and standards of care for medical, nursing, allied health and supportive care services. This program is supported by the Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation.

If you would like to know more about this service, or would like to know if you are eligible for this program please speak to your child’s treating team.
