Victorian Chemotherapy Services Redesign Project
The original project
"Following a successful project conducted at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in 2011/12, where multi-disciplinary staff collaborated to improve the efficiency of their CDU by developing a suite of performance measures to inform targeted interventions, the Department of Health called for ‘Expressions of Interest’ for up to 8 health services to collaborate in a Victorian Chemotherapy Services Redesign Project (VCSRP). A key driver for the establishment of this project was to test the broader application of the measures in a diverse range of CDUs to see if others could replicate the measures, gain insights into local systems constraints and then apply the leanings to achieve similar efficiencies."
