NSW Cancer Information Strategy 2011–15
The NSW Cancer Information Strategy 2011–15 aims to support the implementation of the NSW Cancer Plan 2011–15 by addressing identified priority cancer data and information needs of key stakeholders.
Through a robust, integrated approach to the collection, retrieval, linkage and distribution of cancer data and information, the NSW Cancer Information Strategy 2011-15 identifies objectives, strategies and key activities to be undertaken during the period 2011-15 under four goal areas:
To understand the priority cancer data and information needs of key stakeholders that will support delivery of the NSW Cancer Plan 2011-15.
To implement and support an integrated approach to the collection, retrieval and linkage of high-quality, comparable data, aligned with priority stakeholder needs, in a secure, controlled and lawful manner.
To create and manage an integrated approach to the timely distribution of relevant and accurate cancer data and information that addresses identified Cancer Institute NSW and stakeholder priorities.
To create a robust, efficient and sustainable model that enables rapid access by stakeholders to relevant cancer data and information for the purposes of program and policy development, service delivery, performance improvement and research, and for promoting informed decision-making wherever possible.
