Within SMICS, the ten tumour streams are represented by clinicians from across southern Melbourne, who together form tumour groups. Each group aims to work collaboratively to improve the delivery of care to patients. Tumour group activities are guided by Patient Management Frameworks, which outline a consistent state-wide approach to optimal management of patients with cancer. The memberships of a tumour group comprise of staff from Alfred Health, Cabrini Health, Peninsula Health and Monash Health. There is a mix of medical, nursing, allied health and consumer representatives on nearly all the tumour groups.
