The National Centre for Cancer Survivorship pioneers research that supports the
development of evidence-based care and health services for Australian cancer survivors.
Located at University of New South Wales, the National Centre for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) is Australia’s leading integrated centre of research and clinical services focused on renewing quality of life for people who have survived cancer.
Cancer is a major cause of ongoing illness in Australia, with one in two people developing cancer during their lifetime, but only one in five dying from cancer before the age of 85. While the incidence of cancer in Australia is increasing, cancer survival rates are improving which means many more people are living as cancer survivors.
Through innovative research, the NCCS identifies the needs and develops new interventions to enable cancer health practitioners to provide the best care and support survivors require.
We invite you to have a look around our website to learn more about the research undertaken at the NCCS and how you can get involved as a cancer survivor, medical professional or community member.
