We’re committed to a set of fundamental organisational activities
that drive the National Centre for Cancer Survivorship’s work.
The National Centre for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) is a university centre with a primary focus to conduct clinically-relevant research in relation to cancer survivorship and to use this information to educate and inform care practices for cancer survivors.
The Centre provides a focal point for the growing multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral group of researchers - across universities, research institutions, and health care services - with an interest in cancer survivorship and health services research, enabling new collaborations and preventing duplication.
The broad aim of the Centre is to better understand the health issues confronting cancer survivors and to generate evidence-based interventions to specifically address their unique needs.
The Centre’s experienced team foster research excellence to increase understanding and awareness of cancer survivorship issues, and provide the evidence base for effective interventions to prevent or manage the common health problems arising from the cancer and its treatment.
The key organisational activities that drive the National Centre for Cancer Survivorship’s work include:
Activity 1: Identify specific research projects and priorities;
Activity 2: Develop clinical service models that underpin the research projects;
Activity 3: Establish collaborations to facilitate research outcomes;
Activity 4: Engage with the community;
Activity 5: Articulate the role of the NCCS and promote its successes;
- Activity 6: Establish sustainable funding.
