About NICaN

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.
