Clinical Network

Cancer Council Victoria's Clinical Network is a peak multi-specialty representative oncology forum in Victoria, consisting of approximately 700 health professionals. It aims to support the clinical cancer community to improve care and patient outcomes for all Victorians affected by cancer.

What we do

Clinical Network members provide a state wide perspective on cancer care, contributing to policy and practice change, within a multidisciplinary setting, by supporting best practice, evidence based improvements to cancer care.


The Clinical Network advises the Cancer Council Victoria on all clinical aspects of cancer. We achieve this through education, policy work and research, For example, we establish steering groups to write submissions to relevant government bodies and stakeholders, hold workshops, roundtable discussions and think tanks, webinars and educational events and undertake research and clinical trial projects.
