Cancer

The Can­cer Clin­i­cal Network’s vision is for excel­lence and inno­va­tion in can­cer care for South Australians.

Goals 

The Can­cer Clin­i­cal Net­work aims to improve health out­comes for all South Aus­tralians affect­ed by can­cer. We do this by:

  • being per­son centred
  • focus­ing on com­pas­sion­ate and equi­table care
  • work­ing in col­lab­o­ra­tive part­ner­ships with key stake­hold­ers across the entire can­cer continuum
  • build­ing on lat­est evi­dence to dri­ve excel­lence and innovation
  • dri­ving improve­ments in safe­ty, qual­i­ty and patient experience
  • pro­vid­ing strate­gic exper­tise and advice on can­cer care.
