Committed to saving lives through breast cancer research. The Australia and New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group (ANZBCTG) is one of the most successful, respected and longest established breast cancer research groups in the world. It is the largest independent, oncology clinical trials research group in Australia and New Zealand and for more than 35 years has conducted clinical trials for the treatment, prevention and cure of breast cancer.
The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS), formed in 1927, is a non-profit organisation training surgeons and maintaining surgical standards in Australia and New Zealand. The College’s purpose is to be the unifying force for surgery in Australia and New Zealand, with FRACS standing for excellence in surgical care.
The American Society of Breast Surgeons, the primary leadership organization for general surgeons who treat patients with breast disease, is committed to continually improving the practice of breast surgery by serving as an advocate for surgeons who seek excellence in the care of breast patients. This mission is accomplished by providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and by promoting education, research, and the development of advanced surgical techniques.
Knowing about and understanding illness, dying and loss, and importantly, the questions to ask about the types of specialised care and support available is the key to getting the best care when it is needed.
The Westmead Breast Cancer Institute (BCI) is recognised as one of Australia’s leading and dynamic organisations in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Linking screening to treatment and expert clinical care, the focus of the BCI is to provide continuity for our patients and a coordinated approach to breast cancer care for all our patients. The BCI focuses on best practice, and utilises a research- and evidence-based approach across all of its programs.
Hospice care has a unique whole person approach – which means physical, spiritual, emotional and social needs are equally important – a multidisciplinary team provides care for the person who is dying and their families and friends, both before and after a death.
We believe that we can and will beat cancer. There are things that we can all do every day to help make this happen. Every year in NSW alone, more than 37,500 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed, and the impact on families, carers and communities is significant.
Cancer Australia was established by the Australian Government in 2006 to benefit all Australians affected by cancer, and their families and carers. Cancer Australia aims to reduce the impact of cancer, address disparities and improve outcomes for people affected by cancer by leading and coordinating national, evidence-based interventions across the continuum of care.
Cancer screening can help protect your health through early detection, even if you don’t have any symptoms of the disease. Simple screening tests look for particular changes and early signs of cancer before it has developed or before any symptoms emerge.
