The National Indigenous Cancer Network (NICaN) has been launched. NICaN is an online resource established by a partnership of the Menzies School of Health Research, the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet, the Lowitja Institute, and Cancer Council Australia. It aims to encourage and support collaboration around Indigenous cancer research and delivery of services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer, their carers and families.
The network is one of the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet yarning places.
NICaN is a milestone of the Lowitja Institute project Towards a national approach to improving cancer outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
