Setting the scene

Metro North Health is the largest public provider of health services in Australia. Metro North operates acute facilities at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH), The Prince Charles Hospital, Caboolture Hospital, Redcliffe Hospital, Kilcoy Hospital and the Surgical, Treatment and Rehabilitation Service (STARS).

Breast cancer services are provided at many facilities across Metro North, with the overwhelming proportion of care undertaken at RBWH. Services provided across Metro North include:

  • screening, imaging and diagnostics
  • oncoplastic breast surgery and reconstruction
  • chemotherapy and radiotherapy
  • palliative and supportive care.

Breast cancer management is a highly complex decision-making environment for patients. Patients depend on expert clinical and allied support teams for direction. It is therefore vitally important that health providers for these patients have a shared understanding of best practices to ensure the patient receives optimal care.
