Research

Research in cancer is an essential component of identifying new preventative techniques, developing new and improving existing screening programs, improving diagnostics and developing new cancer treatments.

Ensuring that research is translated to effective treatments and clinical care is the second action area of Victoria's Cancer Action Plan.

Included in the goals for this area is the aim to increase the access for patients from regional areas to clinical trials.

Our priorities around multidisciplinary care will assist with this aim, as will projects that we are participating in with other ICS to strengthen the links between regional cancer care providers and their colleagues in tertiary metropolitan centres.

Hume RICS also provides opportunities for our stakeholders to attend conferences and professional development activities that aim to build the capacity of our workforce and increase the local knowledge about latest innovations in cancer care.

  • The Victorian Cancer Agency has been established to sustain and enhance Victoria's excellent track record in cancer research. With funding support from the Victorian Government, we invest in projects and initiatives that rapidly translate research into treatments and approaches that will improve clinical practice and care of cancer patients.
