Clinical practice guidelines for hepatocellular carcinoma surveillance for people at high risk in Australia
The Clinical practice guidelines for HCC surveillance for people at high risk in Australia aim to provide information and recommendations to guide surveillance for people at high risk of HCC. Evidence has shown it to be successful in detecting lesions and/or early-stage tumours, increasing the receipt of curative treatment and improving overall survival.
The development of these Guidelines was led by eminent clinicians in the area of liver disease and liver cancer, Co-Chairs Professor Jacob George and Dr Nicole Allard, alongside a multi-disciplinary working party, including healthcare and clinical representatives, representatives with lived experience and other community representatives.

Launched in June 2023, the Roadmap aims to reduce the liver cancer disease burden, improve outcomes and improve survival rates for all Australians affected by liver cancer over the next two, five, and ten years. Identifying key priorities that will pave the most efficient and effective way forward and setting a shared agenda to drive improvements in liver cancer care, experience and outcomes.
