Submission on the National Pancreatic Cancer Roadmap


Summary

Date: 27 November 2020

General practice is the patient’s first point of contact within the healthcare system. The holistic, patient-centred and relationship-based approach of general practice can help ensure the effective delivery of preventive care, as well as the coordination of treatment and reduction in fragmentation of care.

The RACGP’s response to the National Pancreatic Cancer Roadmap highlights the main issues and challenges of diagnosing pancreatic cancer as well as improving outcomes for patients.
