National Cancer Expert Reference Group - Consumer advocate

The National Cancer Expert Reference Group (NCERG) is seeking expressions of interest for a second consumer advocate.

NCERG is a high-level, expert national cancer forum that is jointly chaired by the Commonwealth Government and Victoria with representation from all jurisdictions, Cancer Australia, Cancer Council Australia, the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia and consumer input. NCERG has developed a National Cancer work plan to improve cancer care and outcomes for all Australians.

Expressions of interest are welcomed from individuals in any state or territory who are capable of representing the viewpoints and concerns of cancer consumers, consistent with the National Framework for Consumer Involvement in Cancer Control.

NCERG generally holds two face-to-face meetings per year, one in Canberra and one in Melbourne; and two teleconferences.

Travel and accommodation costs associated with attending meetings will also be paid.
