Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre Research

The Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre (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 Health Service Research (DHSR) 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 DHSR. 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.

The Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre (ACSC) and the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) Alliance host a Victorian Cancer Survivorship conference every two years. The two-day conference included a strong line-up of keynote speakers including international and national cancer survivorship experts. To read more about our latest conference please continue on to our Health Professionals events page.
