Optimal care pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer
The Optimal care pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer has been developed with the aim of reducing disparities and improving outcomes and experiences for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer. Cancer is the third leading cause of burden of disease for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. While Australia’s cancer survival rates are among the best in the world, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to experience a different pattern of cancer incidence and significant disparities in cancer outcomes compared with non-Indigenous Australians. The pathway for patients undergoing diagnosis and treatment for cancer is complex, usually involving multiple healthcare providers across a range of settings, both public and private. While the clinical aspects of optimal care are the same for all people, irrespective of cultural heritage, optimal care should deliver health services that are culturally safe and responsive.
