Who we are
The Paediatric Integrated Cancer Service (PICS) is funded by the Victorian Government to lead a networked paediatric cancer care system in Victoria.
We achieve our goals through working with the following Victorian health services.
Victorian primary diagnostic and treatment centres:
The Royal Children’s Hospital
Monash Children’s Hospital
State-wide paediatric radiation therapy service:
Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre
Regional shared care centres:
Our aim is to ensure children and adolescents with cancer receive the best care, in the best facility, as close to home as possible. To do so, we:
Lead and advocate for best-practice paediatric cancer care in Victoria
Respond to the needs of consumers and our partners
Drive innovation and quality improvement
Promote an accessible and family-centred service system
Use data and the best available evidence to set state-wide standards of care
Support access to innovative treatment options
and outcomes by
connecting cancer care
and driving best practice.
PICS is proud to be a member of the Victorian Paediatric Cancer Consortium (VPCC), a partnership between leading research, academic and clinical institutes, working together towards advances in childhood cancer research and how they’re implemented for patients and families.
