Cancer Australia Study

We’re looking for doctors, nurses, social workers and allied health professionals working with people affected by cancer and those who support them, to participate in our study.

Participation is easy and requires only 15 minutes of your time to complete an online survey. With your involvement we can help more people with cancer to receive care consistent with their values, goals and preferences.

About the study

Our research objective is to better understand the barriers and enablers of advance care planning for people with cancer.
The survey asks for information about your current practice and opinions about advance care planning for patients with cancer.
The survey will include questions about:

  • your role and background
  • your experience working with cancer patients
  • workplace policies, procedures and practices


Participants must be currently: 

  • caring professionally for people with a cancer diagnosis (eg clinicians, social workers etc)
  • practicing in Australia
