Cancer Australia has developed the Cancer Service Networks National Program (CanNET) to link regional and metropolitan cancer services into comprehensive cancer networks. CanNET will improve access to quality, clinically-effective cancer services throughout Australia, particularly for specific population groups that may currently have poorer cancer outcomes, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people living in rural and regional areas.
CanNET involves the Australian, state and territory governments working collaboratively with consumers of cancer services and primary, secondary and tertiary health professionals to improve outcomes through better coordination of existing services. There are eight CanNET projects, one in each state and territory. Together, these have the potential to provide coverage for more than eight million Australians.
