Cancer Care Pathways

The South Australian Cancer Care Pathways have been created under the auspices of the SA Cancer Clinical Network.

What are the Cancer Care Pathways?

The SA Cancer Care Pathways are a statement of consensus by health professionals, including cancer specialist practitioners, generalist staff and consumers.

They are based on:

  • current best practice
  • evidence
  • accepted approaches to cancer treatment and management.

Each pathway looks at the entire journey from diagnosis through staging and treatment to survival or palliative care. They provide recommendations based on current evidence for best practice in the management of patients diagnosed with specific types of cancer.

The pathways adopt a multidisciplinary approach to the care of people affected by cancer, with involvement of all relevant health professionals within the multi-disciplinary team.

How are Cancer Care Pathways used?

We expect pathway recommendations would be followed subject to the health professional’s independent medical judgment and the patient’s preference in each individual case.
