Clinical practice guidelines
Clinical practice guidelines bring together the best available evidence to underpin scientifically-valid recommendations for the prevention and diagnosis of cancer and treatment of care of patients.
With the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), the Australian Cancer Network has developed high standards of preparation and evaluation of guidelines for health professionals. Equally important, most of the guidelines are also prepared in a condensed format for use in general practice and in a format and language designed for patients and non-clinical readers.
Guidelines developed by the Australian Cancer Network have been approved by the National Health and Medical Research Council. NHMRC-endorsed guidelines are revised in accordance with legislative requirements. Visit the NHMRC website where you can download PDF copies. To order printed copies email email@example.com.
Cancer Forum - the official journal of COSA and Cancer Council Australia. It is published in March, July and November each year for health professionals in the field of cancer. It is an avenue for communication between all those involved in the fight against cancer, and aims to promote contact across disciplinary boundaries. The policy of Cancer Forum is to provide a forum for debate and the exchange of views. It includes medical, scientific, political, social, educational and administrative comment on all aspects of the fight against cancer.
