State of the Nation Consultation Hub
To inform the State of the Nation: Upper Gastrointestinal (GI) cancers in Australia, we will be engaging people affected by upper GI cancers (pancreatic, liver, stomach, biliary and oesophageal cancers) across Australia via our consultation hub to acknowledge and understand their individual and collective experiences, the challenges faced and key solutions to overcome these challenges from a patient and caregiver perspective.
It is intended that the State of the Nation report will make strategic recommendations for how Australia can best improve outcomes for people impacted by upper GI cancers. The report will look at the cancers as a collective, to identify and to outline solutions for the gaps along the patient experience that affect survival outcomes and quality of life. The State of the Nation report will also consider other federal policy work underway, including the development of Australia’s first ever Australian Cancer Plan and National Pancreatic Cancer Roadmap.
In addition, we are also seeking the input of clinicians and researchers on the perspectives of the major challenges and opportunities for Australian communities today and into the future.
