A specialist can be listed on Canrefer if they:
- manage the day-to-day care of people with cancer at the initial diagnosis and treatment stage
- are an active member of a multidisciplinary cancer care team (MDT), attending at least 75% of meetings (MDT membership is verified every 6 months)
- present cases at the MDT and participate in discussion and consensus decision making (as verified by the chair of the MDT)
- are based in NSW or ACT (or provide care to residents of NSW).
If you are a specialist who meets these criteria, please request a listing through the Contact Canrefer page.
Note: Canrefer lists specialists that a GP would refer to for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. For this reason, specialists such as radiologists, pathologists and nuclear medicine specialists are not listed on Canrefer.
To find palliative care services, a directory is available on the Palliative Care Australia website.
