Established in 1976, initially as the Victorian Co-operative Oncology Group (VCOG), Cancer Council's Clinical Network is a peak multi-specialty representative oncology forum in Victoria. It brings together over 650 multidisciplinary health professionals (such as oncologists, surgeons, palliative care physicians, nurses, allied health and primary health professionals) and researchers who work with people affected by cancer to support best practice and evidenced based cancer care.
The Clinical Network harnesses the voice of clinicians and researchers to improve outcomes for all Victorians affected by cancer. It aims to improve the capacity of the Victorian cancer clinical community through its work in education, policy and advocacy. The Clinical Network also advises Cancer Council on all clinical aspects of cancer.
Strategic goals of the Clinical Network
- Champion and advocate for equitable access to best practice, evidence-based cancer care for all Victorians affected by cancer
- Provide advice to Cancer Council across the full spectrum of cancer care
- Provide opportunities for education, discussion and exchange of information between clinicians involved in cancer care
The current focus of the network is tackling inequitable cancer outcomes for Victorians as outlined in our submission to government regarding the next Victorian Cancer Plan.
