The NSW Regional Cancer Research Network (NSWRCRN) has been established by NSW Regional Health Partners to improve cancer outcomes in regional and rural NSW. We will do this using research and initiatives that are directly informed by the people affected by cancer, and the people providing cancer care in regional and rural NSW. It has been generously funded by the Cancer Institute NSW through their Cancer Research Translation and Capacity (CRTC) Building program.
The NSWRCRN brings together health and medical professionals, researchers, cancer services and the people affected by cancer. It is strongly focussed on the rapid translation of cancer research into clinical practice, with a particular goal of improving opportunities for research participation and equity of outcomes for those affected by cancer within our communities.
NSWRCRN members have access to specialist research assistance and support, and opportunities to collaborate on research projects designed to improve cancer health outcomes and service delivery.
Membership is free and is open to everyone living in our region who has an interest in guiding research designed to improve cancer outcomes in regional and rural NSW – researchers, health and medical professionals, people affected by cancer (current and past patients, family members and carers), staff members of cancer support services, government or policy professionals, members of peak bodies, and other end-users.
