Cancer Australia – Entity Budget Statements – Entity Overview and Resources Section 1: Entity Overview and Resources 1.1 S TRATEGIC D IRECTION S TATEMENT 1 As the Australian Government’s national cancer control agency, Cancer Australia provides leadership in cancer control across all cancers, with reference to burden of disease, cancer incidence, survival, and mortality. Cancer Australia also has a focus on populations which experience poorer health outcomes, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and people living in rural and remote Australia. The Australian Government, through Cancer Australia, aims to: provide national leadership in cancer control to improve cancer outcomes; coordinate evidence-based interventions with a range of health care providers and groups across the continuum of cancer care; lead the development of sustainable and effective models of cancer care; and provide advice on appropriate cancer care. Cancer Australia also oversees a dedicated budget for cancer research and strengthening national data capacity. In order to minimise the impact of cancer, Cancer Australia will, in 2017- 18: implement the 2017-18 Budget measure Invest in Medical Research – fighting childhood cancer , which will provide $4.4 million aimed at increasing Australia’s research capacity to advance diagnosis, treatment, management, analysis, and improve data and awareness of childhood cancer, as well as $1.4 million to fast track international research collaborations of paediatric brain cancer in Australia; translate evidence to inform the development and implementation of policies and programs in cancer control; promote best practice cancer care to health professionals across Australia including the updating and dissemination of evidence-based information on ovarian cancer; lead the development of innovative, sustainable, and evidence-based models of cancer care; strengthen national data capacity through reporting on cancer stage and treatment for selected cancers; fund research in priority areas, including a focus on low survival cancers common among children (0-14 years of age), through the Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme; provide information for people affected by cancer about their diagnosis and treatment; and promote cancer awareness to the community.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
