National patterns of care study for selected cancers in Indigenous Australians (formally called Health system performance and outcomes for Indigenous Australians with cancer: a national study) is a project which will identify areas for improvement to cancer care for Indigenous Australians. It will determine the extent to which Indigenous patients receive curative treatment compared to non-Indigenous patients. The project will also identify how survival rates for Indigenous people with cancer who do and do not receive recommended treatment compare with those for non-Indigenous Australians with cancer. This comparison will also extend to survival rates for Indigenous and non-Indigenous cancer patients in rural areas compared with remote areas.
