    Aboriginal Cancer Healing Centres Expansion

    The project aims to establish cancer care facilities which are more accessible to Aboriginal people, through increased cultural appropriateness of the service, a welcoming and culturally safe environment for people who are undergoing cancer treatment, their families and the community as a whole. 

    The Consortium is developing an Aboriginal cancer healing and wellbeing model that places equal emphasis on the cultural and clinical needs of Aboriginal people affected by cancer, their families and communities, through a process of collaboration between existing cancer (e.g. chemotherapy) services and the Aboriginal community.
