State-wide Cancer Control Plan 2011-2015
The SA State-wide Cancer Control Plan 2011–2015 was developed as a guide to providing coordinated cancer control and care in SA.
The first plan, released in 2007, combined high-level aspirational targets with actions designed to prevent lifestyle-attributed cancers and improve the cancer journey for people diagnosed with cancer.
This new plan is, again, a collaborative effort between Cancer Council SA and the SA Cancer Clinical Network.
The SA Cancer Control Plan aims to:
- reduce the incidence of cancer in SA’s population
- improve the cancer journey for those diagnosed with cancer
- increase long term survival after diagnosis.
The next phase of development is focused on consolidating the work that has already started and implementing newly-funded work which is currently in planning or design stages.
The cancer pathways developed by the Cancer Clinical Network, provide the framework for identifying and improving cancer outcomes.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Companion document
An associated Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Companion document to the State-wide Cancer Control Plan 2011–2015 Cancer Care Pathway provides additional information on the specific deficiencies in cancer control for Aboriginal Australians.
The companion document provides background information and statistical data relating to cancer in the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population. It identifies evidence-based priority areas and proposes effective strategies for implementation.
South Australian Radiotherapy Service Plan 2014 - 2015
The South Australian Radiotherapy Service Plan 2014-2015 (PDF 511KB) was developed as a companion document to the State-wide Cancer Control Plan 2011–2015, following one of the principal recommendations of the Australian Health Ministers Advisory Council’s Radiation Oncology Jurisdictional Implementation Group that all Australian jurisdictions should have a strategic plan for radiotherapy that provides a framework for radiotherapy service delivery.
This Plan sets out the framework and direction required for South Australia to meet best practice radiotherapy service benchmarks, and provides guidance for the provision of radiotherapy services to ensure equitable access for all South Australians.
It is intended that this Plan will support the statewide and local planning and delivery of radiotherapy services to best meet the needs of people with cancer in South Australia.
