The Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre, A Richard Pratt legacy (ACSC) is a unique service based at Peter Mac. Our vision is to optimise the health and wellbeing of cancer survivors and their carers.
The ACSC is not primarily a research group, but has its main focus on clinical service redesign through implementation and evaluation of projects. We do however undertake evidence reviews and summaries, and publish reports on our project work, some of which are published in peer reviewed journals.
The ACSC and the Department of Cancer Experiences Research (DCER) at Peter Mac work closely on areas of evaluation and survivorship research. We often have opportunities for student and intern projects which are co-hosted with DCER. Contact us to see whether we have any current opportunities: [email protected]
The ACSC hosts a research forum twice a year to bring together people interested in survivorship research. For further information visit the ACSC Health Professional Events page.
ACSC was heavily involved in the first (Oct 2016) and second (Feb 2018) Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conferences, and will co-host the third Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference in Melbourne in March 2020.
