Who We Are

The statewide Paediatric Integrated Cancer Service (PICS) is funded by the Victorian Government to lead a networked paediatric cancer care system for Victoria. We work collaboratively with the two Victorian primary diagnostic and treatment centres at the Royal Children’s Hospital and Monash Children’s Hospital, as well as with the statewide paediatric radiation therapy service at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and regional shared care centres.

Our role is to lead a collaborative approach to paediatric cancer in Victoria, promoting a connected cancer care system through partnerships and linkages. We drive innovation and quality improvement within an accessible, family-centred service system, using data and the best available evidence to set statewide standards of care, and to support access to innovative treatment options.

As a leader and advocate for Victorian paediatric cancer care, we are responsive to the needs of consumers and our partners. We aim to ensure children and adolescents with cancer receive the best care, in the best facility as close to home as possible.
