Cancer Council Victoria is currently accepting expressions of interest for a suitably qualified practice nurse to be involved in the Implementing Pathways for Cancer Early Diagnosis; Multimodal Education (I-PACED ME) Project Steering Group.

I-PACED ME is a collaborative project between Cancer Council Victoria (CCV) and The University of Melbourne which promotes best practice cancer care and the adoption of the OCP recommendations for two tumour streams into primary care.

The I-PACED ME project aims to operationalise the first two steps of the oesophagogastric and prostate Optimal Care Pathways into primary care practice. A multimodal education approach will be used to deliver the content to GP’s and Practice Nurses and will include the development of resource cards, eLearning packages, webinars, and targeted PHN forums.

The steering group includes representatives from the Department of Health, CCV, UoM, PHNs and ICS.

Commitment involves attendance a quarterly 1.5 hour project meetings for the project duration (January – December 2018). These can either be attended in person at Cancer Council Victoria, or via teleconference. A practice nurse that can provide expertise in engaging primary care clinicians, strategies for educating the primary care setting and is able to provide feedback on the resources developed for this project would be ideal.  

Please submit your interest to ipaced@cancervic.org.au by Wednesday 10 January, 2018
