A cancer diagnosis is often difficult to take in and everyone will have a different reaction.

Feelings of shock, anger, sadness, fear and helplessness may occur. Making sense of what happens next can be difficult.

The following cancer care pathways have been developed to help identify the steps and recommended care at each stage. Not everyone will follow each step of the pathway, but they will help you know what questions to ask your doctors so you receive the best care.

Information for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who might have cancer

The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services has commissioned Cancer Council Victoria to develop the Optimal Cancer Care Pathways. These will be adopted nationally.

The consumer OCPs have been developed into an interactive web portal. Visit www.cancerpathways.org.au.
