The Queensland Collaborative for Cancer Survivorship leads world-class research to improve patient outcomes after treatment, and for the remainder of their life.
Our collaborative comprises research leaders of international repute from the RBWH, QUT, QIMR Berghofer, UQ, and Youth Cancer Service. As cancer treatment continues to advance, there are now over 1 million cancer survivors living in Australia. These survivors suffer short- and long- term late effects (comorbidities and symptoms) from their cancer and its treatment. The Collaborative focuses on developing and evaluating health innovations that (1) promote best outcomes for patients; and (2) ensure high-quality, sustainable health services.
