Australian Child and Adolescent Cancer PSP

More than 1000 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer each year in Australia and projections indicate a substantial increase to 1060 cases annually by 2035. Childhood cancer remains the second leading cause of death in children after childhood injuries.

Australian Child and Adolescent Cancer Priority Setting Partnership

The PSP will work with children and adolescents who were diagnosed with cancer or brain tumour as a child or adolescent (up to their 19th birthday), their parents, siblings, and carers impacted by cancer and the health care professionals who deliver childhood cancer care, to identify and prioritise uncertainties relating to childhood and adolescence cancer in Australia.

The PSP is being led by researchers from the Queensland University of Technology and the University of New South Wales and Redkite.
