A long-term focus
It can take years, and sometimes decades, to see real improvements in many cancer outcomes at the population level. Reflecting this timeframe, the Victorian cancer plan monitoring and evaluation framework was published in 2018 to help monitor progress of the 2025 and 2040 goals outlined in the Victorian cancer plan 2016–2020. The Victorian cancer plan monitoring and evaluation framework: baseline report (2020) is the first report of its kind to present the most up-to-date information on trends in the state’s progress against key goals outlined in the Victorian cancer plan 2016–2020. It was used to inform the development of the current 2020-2024 cancer plan. As this was the first report (baseline report), results were not available for every measure. Results will be reported in the future as data becomes available.
For a snapshot of key results please refer to the infographics. A factsheet (Frequently Asked Questions) sets out some responses to questions that are specific to the baseline report including what it contains and how the data were selected. For those wanting more detail please refer to the full baseline report. In circumstances where the dataset specific to a measure was too large, it was moved to Appendix 2 as a separate volume to assist with readability.
