SA Health is developing a new 5 year SA Cancer Plan to guide how cancer care is provided to South Australians, and would like your input.

What's being decided?

We want to hear about your experiences with cancer prevention and care in South Australia, and your ideas about where and how we should focus our efforts in the future. We want to hear from anyone who is involved in cancer care, whether you are a key organisation representing specific cancer types, a clinician, researcher, have a friend or family member with cancer, have cancer yourself or have previously had a cancer diagnosis.

We will use this information to understand what is currently happening in cancer care in South Australia, and to shape future strategies.

Background

SA Health is undertaking a project to develop a new cancer plan for South Australia. Implementation of a new SA Cancer Plan is a 2022 State Government election commitment.

The SA Cancer Plan will be a five-year plan which provides clear guidance to SA Health and its partners regarding an agreed vision, priorities, future directions and approach to cancer care. When we talk about cancer care we include all domains of the cancer spectrum including prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship and palliative care as well as cancer data collection, research and clinical trials.

The completed SA Cancer Plan will be implemented and used to inform high level future decisions on service planning and resource allocations, including where SA Health funded cancer services will be delivered.

Get involved

We are committed to understanding what is happening in cancer in South Australia and working with all people with an interest to develop the future strategies and priorities for cancer care in the next five years. We are keen to hear about how people currently experience cancer care in South Australia, including from those who provide the care, people who support someone who is receiving care and people receiving cancer care.
