Cancer Consumer Reference Group

Canberra Health Services has established the Cancer Consumer Reference Group. It consists of 12 individual members with diverse background and different experiences of cancer. Members have been selected based on their knowledge and skills in providing consumer, carer and community perspectives on the provision of cancer services within the ACT and surrounding communities. 

Members were able to demonstrate that they are engaged with the community and have an understanding of the issues associated with cancer services within the region. The focus is on the community needs and concerns not the individuals.

The reference group has been created to increase consumer, carer and community participation in the planning and delivery of cancer services within the Division of Cancer and Ambulatory Support.

For more information on the reference group read the Cancer Consumer Reference Group Terms of Reference or contact CHS.CAS@act.gov.au

CRCC has an extensive collection of education material for patients, their families and carers. You can access these at the Resource Centre on Level 2.
