My care plan is my physical record. It came along with me during my journey and acted as a valuable communication tool as I moved between healthcare professionals.

About this website

In 2017, the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre (ACSC) developed the Survivorship Care Plan Component Database and User Guide with funding from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.

To improve accessibility and ease of use of this database, MyCarePlan.org.au was created with funding from the Western & Central Melbourne Integrated Cancer Service (WCMICS) and website development by Allied Creative.

At this stage ACSC have developed this tool for three major cancer types. We hope to add further cancer types in the future.

This project was supported by the Victorian Government.
