National Pancreatic Roadmap launched
The Australian Government has launched the National Pancreatic Cancer Roadmap (Roadmap) and has committed $20.3 million to support improved outcomes and survival for Australians affected by pancreatic cancer.
The National Pancreatic Cancer Roadmap identifies 33 key priority areas and 60 strategies for collective action over the next five years to 2027. These priority areas were developed with stakeholders and cover all aspects of the pancreatic cancer pathway, including prevention, early detection, diagnosis, treatment, supportive and palliative care, and research.
Cancer Australia has created the Roadmap as an interactive, easy to use web-based tool where users can easily identify information in their areas of interest across the continuum of pancreatic research, treatment and care.

Cancer Voices involvement in the National Pancreatic Roadmap
CVN member Gino Iori was nominated by Cancer Voices for the Cancer Australia Pancreatic Roadmap steering committee in late 2020.
Gino brings a carer’s perspective to all his consumer representative work. His brother passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2011 and following CIR training in 2014 he has been involved with researchers to bring about real project outcomes. Like many of us he is passionate about input into the research projects from the “consumer” (or community representative point of view) and how this leads to better projects and outcomes for all stakeholders.
