Statewide Can­cer Clin­i­cal Net­work Vision

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

  • 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.
