About Targeting Cancer

About Targeting Cancer

1 in 2 cancer patients would benefit from radiation therapy at some time during their cancer experience1. However, less than 1 in 3 patients in Australia and New Zealand will actually receive radiation therapy2.

The Radiation Oncology Targeting Cancer Campaign is an initiative of the Faculty of Radiation Oncology of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR)*.

The Campaign aims to increase awareness of radiation therapy as an effective, safe and sophisticated treatment for cancer. It is designed to reach people with cancer, their families and loved ones to improve their knowledge and access to this (sometimes overlooked) treatment.

The Campaign also strives to educate health professionals about radiation therapy, in particular, general practitioners. This website is a trusted source of information developed by radiation oncologists who are the medical specialists highly trained in the care of patients with cancer, in particular, where management may involve the use of radiation therapy.

The Campaign team continues to undertake many activities, including the development and delivery of useful resources about radiation therapy, to assist those touched by cancer, now or in the future.

If you would like to find out more about the Campaign, please帐目ct us.

* The Faculty of Radiation Oncology, RANZCR, is the peak bi-national body advancing patient care and the specialty of radiation oncology through setting of quality standards, producing excellent radiation oncology specialists, and driving research, innovation and collaboration in the treatment of cancers.
