Cancer Council Australia's Standard for Informed Financial Consent: Updated
Cancer Council Australia has updated their website with further information on the Standard for Informed Financial Consent.
The USANZ Board endorsed the Standard in March this year, and this has been acknowledged with the Society's logo (along with the logos of other organisations) on the updated resource material. The Standard recognises the need to improve the transparency of out-of-pocket costs for cancer patients, reducing the financial burden of cancer.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 progress on the development of a range of activities and resources to support the uptake of the Standard for Informed Financial Consent, has been delayed. However, USANZ looks forward to the opportunity to collaborate on the development of these resources in the near future.
