Implementation and measuring progress

Governance of the NSW Cancer Plan

Clear governance structures will support effective, coordinated and collaborative implementation of the NSW Cancer Plan.

While the Cancer Institute NSW is the custodian of the NSW Cancer Plan, overall governance of the plan is provided by the multi-stakeholder NSW Cancer Plan Governance Committee. The  Governance Committee:

  • provides oversight and advice on implementation, monitoring and reporting for the NSW Cancer Plan to ensure goals are achieved
  • promotes and facilitates engagement and communication between all stakeholders involved in implementing the NSW Cancer Plan
  • provides oversight and advice for evaluations of the NSW Cancer Plan
  • provides oversight and advice through the development and implementation of subsequent cancer plans for NSW.

Implementation of the NSW Cancer Plan

The purpose of the NSW Cancer Plan is to provide the overarching direction for cancer control in NSW. How we will address the strategic priorities and achieve the goals will be determined in a supporting implementation plan, which will be developed with collaborators and stakeholders.

The implementation plan will detail the activities and initiatives, the responsible collaborators and stakeholders, and the timeframes for delivering these within the life of this NSW Cancer Plan.

Monitoring, evaluation and reporting on progress

Monitoring, evaluation and reporting on success is vital to understand if we have achieved the goals of the plan and to inform changes over the life of the NSW Cancer Plan. The implementation plan will also be a key part of how we will measure and track progress against the NSW Cancer Plan.

We will continue to measure and track our progress against the goals of the NSW Cancer Plan through the NSW Cancer Plan Performance Index, which includes a selection of high-level system indicators.
