A plethora of research exists showing that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in Australia have poorer cancer survival outcomes than their non-Aboriginal counterparts. Seeking to uncover the reasons why these rates differ so markedly is the aim of Dr Gabriel Gabriel’s project which was awarded a CONCERT Grant earlier this year.
Exciting changes are happening in medical oncology across Wollongong and Shoalhaven hospitals. Driven by the Head of the Medical Oncology Department, Dr Lorraine Chantrill, these changes are seeing an increased focus on research with the aim of improving outcomes for cancer patients in the future.

The seven strategies aimed at improving cancer research participation by people from CALD backgrounds, developed at co-design workshop earlier this year, can now be viewed on our website. https://www.concert.org.au/increasing-participation-of-people-from-cald-backgrounds-in-research/
