Overcoming cancer together

Our alliance is a multi-site, multi-disciplinary joint venture partnership between 10 leading medical research, academic and clinical institutions with a shared goal of improving outcomes for Victorian cancer patients.

Distributed leadership

Together, the VCCC alliance members represent a critical mass of expertise and resources. Strategic leadership is drawn from across the alliance members, VCCC distributed leadership model, to:

  • Guide programs of work
  • Review and approve new processes and systems
  • Contribute to education and training initiatives
  • Create more effective ways of working in a collaborative landscape

   Active database contacts: 7,095   Education and training attendees: 8,614







The VCCC programs have gained traction and built momentum throughout the 2018-19 reporting period. Successes and achievements demonstrate both the short-term benefits and long-term capacity of the comprehensive cancer centre model that underpins the alliance.

Program outcomes highlight the breadth, diversity and significance of the work; the potential for future growth, and impact on the Victorian community.
