Strategic Goals 2017 - 2020
1. A Networked Cancer Care System
2. High Quality Cancer Care
3. Research Informed Cancer Care System
Services will be population based
Individuals will have access to the full range of services from prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, supportive care and end-of-life-care
Referral pathways are clearly defined for the range of services required
Care is multidisciplinary and coordinated
High quality care requires a ‘critical mass’ of experience and leadership
To improve the experience and outcomes for people with cancer and their families, LMICS has well formed partnerships with Health Services across the Loddon Mallee region (LMR).
We continue to build relationships with private hospitals and providers, pathology and imaging services, primary care networks and in research to improve service integration and coordination through care that is multidisciplinary, supportive and responsive to the needs of communities across the region. The following services are current members of LMICS:
