This program involves the development of an Aboriginal cancer care pathway to support staff and patients at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Victoria.
The aim of the program is to provide support and care throughout the preventative, awareness, referral, diagnostic, treatment and survival or palliative care stages to Aboriginal patients and families who attend the centre.
The program is running in conjunction with other initiatives at the centre which include increasing awareness of Aboriginal health and creating a culturally safe environment for Aboriginal patients and families. It follows similar principles to the Improving care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients program (Department of Health Victoria) in terms of identifying and implementing culturally appropriate strategies for supporting Aboriginal patients accessing health services in Victoria.
