Improving cancer care now and into the future

As the largest private provider of cancer services in Australia, and the second largest cancer service provider in Victoria, Cabrini is committed to cancer research.

At current rates, it is expected one in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85, presenting a major issue for our health system.

Cancer research is key in finding new ways to improve treatments and develop better cancer services to support people during one of the most vulnerable times in their life.

Cabrini’s researchers and clinicians work collaboratively to drive discoveries which are making an impact across the full spectrum of a patient’s cancer journey from screening to diagnosis, treatment and survival.
