Overriding principles

Three overriding principles guide the direction of the NSW Cancer Plan.

These principles inform the way individuals, organisations and governments involved in cancer control will work together to develop and deliver initiatives to improve cancer outcomes.

Overriding principles

Putting the principles into practice

These principles will be put into practice under each priority. 

The Implementation Plan that supports this NSW Cancer Plan provides further detail on how the overriding principles will be embedded into the work of key stakeholders. 

The actions in the Implementation Plan intend to contribute to driving forward progress under each of the principles – for example, targeted action for focus populations; actions that enhance access in regional, rural and remote areas; or actions that bring together groups to develop coordinated and collaborative approaches.
