Cancer Care and Cancer Survivorship


Cancer is a leading cause of death in Australia and one in two Australian men and women will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Cancer survivors live with, live through, and live beyond cancer. While living with a history of cancer is different for each person, a common belief among most is that life is different after cancer.

Our aim

The Cancer Survivorship research program is aimed at transforming nurse-initiated survivorship care by conducting research to understand the experiences of people living with the effects of cancer and to identify effective and novel supportive care interventions.
