We are committed to supporting the continual professional development of the cancer care workforce across the alliance and beyond.
In a comprehensive cancer centre setting, leadership means the ability to harness collective effort to achieve maximum gain.
The VCCC develops and supports systems and processes that enable research knowledge to be applied in clinical practice to help ensure that patients benefit quickly from the latest cancer research.
The VCCC alliance has developed programs to address the areas of greatest need and significant gaps in clinical trial activity.
Scientists shadow clinicians, attending outpatient clinics, multi-disciplinary cancer meetings and ward rounds to gain unique clinical insights, enabling new connections and relationships.
Maps opportunities for scientists to understand the complexities of clinical medicine, approaches to care, and interaction between clinicians, patients and carers.
Initial implementation of the program requires engaging key stakeholders, setting up guiding structures and understanding the context where the program will be taking place.
Planning implementation will ensure a smooth roll out, including consideration of logistics, development of documentation, timelines and communication plans.
Rolling out of the program will involve continual monitoring and tracking against the project plan and timelines.
An essential step involves measuring whether the program achieved what it set out to and reflection on what went well and what did not.
Setting up and implementing the program, including key considerations, engagement and evaluation.
