The Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) Children’s Cancer Centre (CCC) Carers Network brings the parents, families, carers, cancer and haematological disease survivors and RCH staff together to work on the shared goal of achieving the best outcomes and experiences for children and young people receiving care.
Children and young people receiving care face many challenges in having their voice heard during their care experience. The network of parents, families and carers who surround them are uniquely placed to support, articulate and amplify children and young people's needs whilst they receive expert care from the RCH's world-leading paediatric team.
Formerly called the 'Parent Advisory Group', the CCC Carers Network is always chaired by a family member and is guided by the principles of Patient and Family Centred Care. These include dignity and respect, information, sharing, participation and collaboration.
The Royal Children's Hospital Children’s Cancer Centre Carers Network works together with patients, families and carers so children and young people achieve the best care outcomes and experiences.
