Reporting for Better Cancer Outcomes Program
Reporting for Better Cancer Outcomes (RBCO) is a program that supports continuous improvement in cancer control in NSW.
Through analysis of cancer data and engagement with the cancer health system, RBCO helps all levels of the health system understand variation in cancer control and identify opportunities to improve cancer services and patient outcomes.
About this program
The aim of RBCO is to ensure that NSW remains a world leader cancer control, including:
- Cancer prevention: reducing the number of people who get cancer
- Cancer screening: finding cancers early
- Cancer treatment: ensuring people with cancer are assessed quickly, and get the best and most appropriate treatment
- Cancer research: supporting the development of new treatments and approaches to cancer care.
To support this goal, RBCO focuses on:
- engaging all levels of the cancer health system
