Health professionals play a key role in cancer control through cancer prevention, early detection, cancer diagnosis and treatment, survivorship and palliative care. Cancer Council Queensland aims to reduce the incidence of cancer, to diagnose cancer early, and enhance the standard of care for people impacted by cancer by engaging with health professionals and providing access to information and educational opportunities.
This is achieved through Cancer Council Queensland’s Health Professional Education and Engagement Program in collaboration with Cancer Council Queensland departments and across regional Queensland.If you would like to see some of the great initiatives we are working on feel free to browse the links below or view our resources and educational program pages.

Optimal Cancer Care Pathway Survey
The Healthcare Improvement Unit, in collaboration with Cancer Council Queensland, is conducting an online survey to better understand the awareness, knowledge of, accessibility to, and use of the Optimal Cancer Care Pathways (OCCP’s).
Optimal Cancer Care Pathways are national guidelines outlining the best cancer care for 15 specific tumour types. The pathways are designed to promote a full understanding of the patient journey in order to foster quality cancer care.
If you’re interested in making a difference, we invite you to complete the survey from February 1 to February 22, 2017.
