National Indigenous Cancer Network



Cancer Australia is working with Menzies School of Health Research to develop a National Aboriginal

and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework.

The Framework aims to define evidence based priorities that can be used to inform the national cancer

control agenda, and ultimately contribute to improved health and wellbeing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait

Islander people with cancer and their families.

To inform the Framework, Cancer Australia is aiming to capture a wide range of perspectives from

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have been affected by cancer, including their families and

community. We also want to hear from all people who have a role in cancer control, including Aboriginal

and Torres Strait Islander health workers, GPs, nurses, specialists, allied health practitioners and people

who work in screening, prevention and palliative care.

There are a number of ways you can get involved and provide your important feedback:

1. an online survey; and/or
2. an online facilitated ‘yarning place’

Online survey

The online survey can be accessed from 24 February 2015 and will remain open until the 27 March 2015.

The survey will take around 15 minutes to complete.

To complete the survey, please click survey here.

Online facilitated yarning place

The online yarning place is hosted at the National Indigenous Cancer Network (NICaN) yarning place on

the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet website.

If you have any issues with accessing the survey or online yarning place please contact Bridget Kehoe or

Brian Arley on 07 3169 4201 or email or
