Cancer: What to Expect

Hot off the press this week is some very interesting material from the Cancer Council about what to expect when you have cancer. Did any of you see this?

Cancer guidelines

These resources are focused on patients, but also are useful for GPs. More detailed resources, for doctors can be found here:

With links to melanoma and also non-melanoma cancers.

You may be aware that the Cancer Council is in the final stages of development of the new national melanoma guidelines. I am still working my way through these resources, but so far I like them a lot. I hope you find them useful and also share them, as appropriate, with your patients
