Cancer Council Queensland and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare have teamed up with us and our partner Queensland University of Technology to develop the first Australian Cancer Atlas.
The Australian Cancer Atlas will deliver a freely accessible, interactive, online platform to show Australians how cancer varies depending on where they live.
It will provide a comprehensive national picture of how cancer screening, diagnosis and survival varies across the country across small geographical areas. It will include estimates for up to 20 different cancer types, making it possible to identify key geographical differences in cancer diagnosis and outcomes.
The expected launch date of the Atlas is July 2018. Until then, the team has developed an Australian Cancer Atlas Newsletter to keep you informed on the progress of this exciting project.
If you would like to receive further updates on the Atlas, please subscribe to the newsletter here.
If you have any other questions or feedback please get in touch with project leads.
Health experts launched today an Australian-first research study to understand national patterns in cancer incidence, survival and screening practices based on where people live.
