Prostate Optimal Care Pathway Overview
The Integrated Cancer Services (ICS) works with health services to implement the nationally endorsed Optimal Care Pathways for cancer (OCPs). Prostate cancer was nominated by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) as one of the focus tumour streams for 2017/18.
WCMICS have provided solutions and recommendations based on information from the state-wide Prostate Cancer Summit held in 2016.
Together with our consumers, health service partners and major prostate support groups in Melbourne, we have achieved solutions that are consumer focused, engaging and effective. The continued support from consumers, clinician and stakeholders was also a key factor for the increased adoption of the solutions in health services.
