Growing underlying need, along with the desire to improve the quality of care and outcomes of treatment llead to a decision by Cancer Australia to develop a framework to guide directions in gynaecological cancer control over the next five years. HMA was engaged to prepare:

     “The National Framework for Gynaecological Cancer Control. (The National Framework)”

The framework built on developmental work already undertaken by Cancer Australia. The Gynaecological Cancer Advisory Group (GCAG), consisting of a wide range of stakeholders and experts, provided technical advice to HMA on the project. The project included the following activities:

  • Situation analysis including a scan of the relevant literature
  • Development of a consultation framework
  • Consultations with all key stakeholders, including specialist hospitals, peak bodies, and consumer organisations
  • Review workshop with members of the GCAG to formulate directions, and
  • Prepared the final report: the National Framework for Gynaecological Cancer Control

This project commenced in November 2014 and was completed in July 2015
