The Regional Outreach and Shared Care Program (ROSCP) is a program that facilitates the transition between the primary treating hospital and the regional centres caring for children and adolescents with cancer. The program provides opportunities for shared care and ensures there are agreed levels of training and standards of care for medical, nursing, allied health and supportive services. This program is supported by the Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation.
The Long Term Follow-up Program (LTFP) facilitates the transition from completion of curative treatment to the ‘survivorship’ phase of the cancer journey. The aim of the program is to provide a clear and consistent standard of long term follow-up care across Victoria, which is responsive to the needs of all childhood cancer survivors and their families.
The program is accessible to all paediatric, adolescent and young adult survivors of childhood cancer living in Victoria. It provides each individual with a tailored approach to meet their ongoing needs and an appropriate transition plan to adult-based, community or hospital services. The PICS LTFP clinics are held at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Monash Children’s Hospital, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Alfred Health and at designated regional centres.
