Patients and Community

The best interests of people affected by cancer, underpins the work we do.

Cancer is the leading cause of death and disease in Australia. This means cancer affects everyone in our community, including carers, families and friends.

Patient-centric insights and voice

We integrate patient and carer perspectives through consultation processes to inform our programs of work.

The VCCC is assisted and advised by community representatives on our Cancer Consumer Advisory Committee (CCAC).

Our Cancer Consumer Advisory Committee works closely with the VCCC members and programs to:

  • Enable strategic research connections
  • Inspire new ideas
  • Collect and share information
  • Provide insights into patient experiences
  • Offer a consumer point-of-view
