The COSA Cancer Care Coordinator National Contacts Database 
The Group established the COSA Cancer Care Coordinator National Contacts Database to provide opportunities for networking and sharing of information between Cancer Care Coordinators across Australia. The database also assists Cancer Care Coordinators with transferring patients regionally or interstate. 

Information on the database is available to COSA Members only. Cancer Care Coordinators who wish to gain access to the database are encouraged to join COSA.

To have your contact details included in the database you must:

  • hold an appointment as a cancer care coordinator
  • incorporate the critical functions of assessment, management, and evaluation of clinical and supportive care needs throughout the cancer journey

If your details have changed or you would like us to include your details on the database please fill in the form available here and submit to cosa@cancer.org.au.

By entering your contact details, you agree for this information to be available to COSA members via the COSA website. All contacts receive The Coordinator newsletter. COSA will contact all Cancer Care Coordinators with details on the database annually for confirmation and consent to remain on the database.
