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 Government.
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 has developed this tool for six major cancer types, early stage breast, early stage bowel, localised prostate, early stage melanoma, uterine (endometrial) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (diffuse large B-cell).
