Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre



The Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre (ACSC) is a multidisciplinary team with a vision to improve the health and wellbeing of cancer survivors and their carers. They work with cancer survivors, health professionals, community organisations, and policy makers to ensure that survivors receive the best possible care.

The ACSC is not primarily a research group but has a focus on clinical service redesign through implementation and evaluation of projects. The ACSC undertakes evidence reviews and summaries, and publishes reports on project work, some of which peer reviewed journals then publish. 

The ACSC and Peter Mac’s Health Services Research (HSR) department work closely on areas of evaluation and survivorship research. They often have opportunities for student and intern projects which are co-hosted with HSR. Email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The ACSC, in collaboration with the Victorian Cancer Agency, hosts a research forum twice a year to bring together people interested in survivorship research. For further information visit the ACSC Events for health professionals page.

The ACSC and the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) Alliance have hosted four Victorian Cancer Survivorship conferences. The two-day conference has included national and international cancer survivorship experts. This conference was last held virtually in March 2022.
