Aligning with our Strategic Plan 2016-19, we work in partnership with Victorian health services to promote a connected cancer care system through partnerships and linkages. We use data and the best available evidence to set statewide standards of care. Our work supports the delivery of the best care, in the best facility as close to home as possible.
Examples of the many clinical and supportive care activities we have completed to improve care and outcomes are listed below:
- Victorian paediatric oncology care pathway: providing optimal care for children and adolescents – acute leukaemia and central nervous system tumours (June 2018)
- Multidisciplinary meeting framework: a guide for Victorian health services providing care to children and adolescents with cancer (June 2017)
- A compendium of evidence and framework for the delivery of neuropsychological services in paediatric cancer (September 2015)
- Service capability framework: A guide for Victorian health services providing radiation therapy to children and adolescents with cancer (October 2015)
- Service Capability framework: A guide for Victorian health services providing primary treatment and shared care to children and adolescents with cancer (March 2014)
- Victorian Paediatric Oncology Situational Analysis & Workforce Requirements 2012-2016: Summary Report (May 2013)
Over the years we have developed many models of care in partnership with Victorian health services, including for art, music and play therapy, dietetics, occupational therapy, psychosocial services, culturally and linguistically diverse families and survivors of childhood cancer. If you would like to know more about any of these models of care please contact us directly.
