The Facts

Detected early enough, patients with Stage 1 and 2 cancers have excellent survival rates. But education is crucial if we are to ensure early diagnosis and treatment [1] to pursue good treatment outcomes and optimal survival rates.

What we need

  • A primary healthcare system that is cancer minded, skilled and effective for early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and palliative care.
  • Community awareness.
  • Trained healthcare professionals (HCPs).
  • Diagnostic ability.
  • The development of functional referral pathways from primary care into diagnostic centres of excellence, and then on to tertiary cancer treatment centres within a workable time frame of no longer than four weeks.
