  • Regional Outreach and SharedCare Program (ROSCP)

    The ROSCP is an initiative of the Paediatric Integrated Cancer Service (PICS). The ROSCP is a program that facilitates the transition between the primary treating hospital and the regional centre that cares 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.

    Long Term Follow-up Program(LTFP)

    Long term follow-up care was recognised as an area of high importance within Victoria's Cancer Action Plan 2008 - 2011. Victoria's Cancer Action Plan outlines the key priorities with regard to cancer prevention and cancer care. Paediatric Integrated Cancer Service (PICS) was successful in securing government funding from the plan to develop a state-wide Long Term Follow-up Program (LTFP) for survivors of childhood cancer.

    The focus of the LTFP service is health promotion and awareness, early detection and intervention of any cancer-related and other health and well-being issues. The emphasis is on empowering individuals and families to take control of their survivorship. The aim is to improve the future health possibilities and to prepare children, young people and their families for transition into a suitable health care setting at the appropriate time. This may mean transition back to your community GP or to an adult treating facility.

    LTF clinics are held at The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH), Monash Children's (MC) at Monash Health (MH), Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre (Peter Mac), Alfred Health and at designated regional centres
