National patterns of care study for selected cancers in Indigenous Australians

 

Overview

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.
