The optimal cancer care pathways (OCPs) describe best practice cancer care. They are designed to promote a full understanding of the patient experience and to foster evidenced based, quality cancer care from the point of diagnosis onwards.

The resources identify specific steps, or critical points along the care pathway and the recommended care at each point.

Both detailed pathways and quick reference guides have been developed.

Patient Resources: Your guides to best cancer care

These short guides help patients understand the optimal cancer care that should be provided at each step and can be used to complement the clinical OCPs. Carers, family and friends may also find them helpful.

The guides are located on an interactive web portal, with downloadable PDFs in English, plain English and translation into multiple languages.
