Australian guidelines

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) maintains the Australian Clinical Practice Guidelines portal. The portal links to evidence-based guidelines for use in Australian health care settings. You can search the list by keywords.

There are no current Australian clinical practice guidelines for children’s cancer. NHMRC adds new guidelines to the portal as they are published.

Victorian Paediatric Integrated Cancer Service has published the Victorian paediatric oncology care pathways for health services and professionals.
