The National Indigenous Cancer Network (NICaN) is a national network that encourages and supports collaboration around Indigenous cancer research and delivery of services to Indigenous people with cancer including their carers and families.
NICaN is about making sure that what's known about cancer in Indigenous Australians is available for use by people with cancer, their families, practitioners, policy makers and researchers.
NICaN is a network and online resource for sharing evidence-based information and resources about cancer in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We welcome your membership, questions and contributions.
It has been set up as partnership between the Menzies School of Health Research, the DISCOVER-TT Centre of Research Excellence, the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet, the Lowitja Institute, Cancer Council Australia and Indigenous audiences, consumers, researchers and health professionals from a broad range of disciplines, service providers, private sector and government organisations.
NICaN membershp is free and open to all interested individuals, groups, and organisations. Members will have the opportunity to attend annual face to face network meetings via Indigenous Cancer Roundtables, participate in discussion forums through the Yarning place and be kept up to date through Twitter.
