Clinical guidelines

Clinical practice guidelines bring together the best available evidence to underpin scientifically-valid recommendations for the prevention and diagnosis of cancer and treatment of care of patients.

Cancer Council Australia's Clinical Guidelines Network (formerly Australian Cancer Network) has developed high standards of preparation and evaluation of guidelines for health professionals. Equally important, most guidelines have also prepared a condensed format for use in general practice and written for patients and non-clinical readers.

Cancer Council Australia is now moving towards developing and publishing online Clinical Practice Guidelines.

To view current Clinical Practice Guidelines visit the Cancer Guidelines wiki.

Cancer Guidelines Wiki

Guidelines developed by the Network that have been approved by NHMRC have been revised in accordance with legislative requirements. NHMRC approved guidelines are also on the NHMRC clinical practice guidelines portal, where you can download PDF copies.
