Clinical Network celebrates 40 years working with Victorian cancer clinicians and cancer care advocates
The Clinical Network has come a long way since our establishment in 1976. We have changed our name, purpose and structure and evolved substantially, reflecting the changing cancer landscape in Victoria. We were established as the Victorian Chemotherapy Cooperative Group (VCCG) and evolved to the Victorian Cooperative Oncology Group in 1981.
The original purpose was to discuss the management of solid tumours requiring chemotherapy, a fairly new method of treatment in Victoria at the time.
Today the Clinical Network aims to support our members to collectively advocate for practice change for a variety of cancer treatment related issues, affecting both patients and clinicians.
We establish steering groups to write submissions or letters to relevant government bodies, run niche events, hold workshops and undertake research projects.
We encourage you to get in touch with us with your issues or opportunities. Read on to find out how we can assist you.
