Cancer remains a pressing health care challenge in Australia. Quality national data is critical in informing cancer control efforts.
Cancer Australia’s National Cancer Control Indicators (NCCI) website is a unique, dynamic national resource that brings together, for the first time, trusted national data to inform where our efforts can be best placed.
NCCI comprises a set of indicators across the continuum of cancer care, from Prevention and Screening through to Diagnosis, Treatment, Psychosocial care, Research and Outcomes. The indicators have been developed through an extensive engagement and consultation process.
NCCI forms a bridge between information and outcomes, enabling users to see interconnections and relationships across cancer control, and to monitor national trends and benchmark internationally.
Designed for policymakers, governments, cancer organisation, researchers, health professionals and consumers, the data on the website will enhance understanding, stimulate enquiry and inform future directions in cancer control, whether in research, policy or clinical care.
It will also be a trustworthy, authoritative source of information for the broader community and people affected by cancer.
Through NCCI, users can choose the type and depth of information they require through interactive charts which provide a visual representation of each indicator.
