The Leukaemia Foundation has announced a ground-breaking initiative for people with blood cancer in Australia with the launch of the National Strategic Action Plan for Blood Cancer.
The Australian Government commissioned the Leukaemia Foundation to develop the National Action Plan on behalf of the blood cancer community.
The plan is a blueprint to coordinate and accelerate national efforts to improve survival and quality of life for people diagnosed with blood cancer and to support their carers and families. It identifies four major priorities:
- Empower patients and their families
- Accelerate research
- Enable access to novel and specialised therapies
- Achieve best practice.
MPN AA provided input into the plan’s development and is one of the Leukaemia Foundation’s partners in the plan.
The plan is available HERE.
