Cancer screening

Cancer Council Victoria has refreshed the Cancer Screening Hub, a website with practical tools and resources for people working with communities and seeking to increase participation in the national cancer screening programs.

The enhanced Cancer Screening Hub features a more user-friendly design, new resources, videos and case studies that showcase our successful learnings, and insights from Cancer Council practitioners and partners on working with priority communities.

The Hub will be regularly refreshed with new tools and resources. Get the tools you need to improve cancer screening in your community, visit the Cancer Screening Hub.
