A key focus for COORDINARE is to increase cancer screening rates across a range of demographics, including older people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and multicultural communities. Read our Prevention initiatives statement for more information.
Australians diagnosed through the national cancer screening programs are 59% less likely to die from bowel cancer, 69% less likely to die from breast cancer and 87% less likely to die from cervical cancer compared to Australians diagnosed another way.
The National Cancer Screening Register supports the national bowel cancer and cervical screening programs. We have developed an NCSR Infosheet to provide instructions about using the National Cancer Screening Register's Healthcare Provider Portal or Best Practice and Medical Director to access patient histories, submit forms, and reports electronically. BreastScreen Australia is the national breast cancer screening program.
HealthPathways provides a detailed guide to screening, assessment, management and local referral options including breast, bowel, cervical, lung and prostate cancer. Visit the Illawarra Shoalhaven or ACT & Southern NSW HealthPathways sites for information relevant to your region.
