    Abstract

    Digital technologies promise to overcome some of the major challenges of cancer care today, including enabling continuity of care in a complex and high-risk setting, rapid information access and analysis, and facilitation of patient’s self-management. With digital technologies increasingly adopted across all aspects of cancer care, there is a need for a systematic approach to their development and application, in order to maximise benefits to individuals and society and ensure equity of access. The Australian Digital Health in Cancer Care Roadmap (the Roadmap) is intended to identify priorities for the development, implementation and use of digital health technologies in cancer care in Australia, such that health systems can respond to priority needs identified that reflect best evidence and consumer and other stakeholder input.

    This Roadmap is intended to support best practice in development, adoption, and evaluation of digital technology in cancer in Australia. As such it may assist health care professionals, consumers, researchers, policy makers and technology developers in decisions relevant to cancer care. The Roadmap is not intended to be a static document, nor a fixed plan but rather serve as a prompt for engagement and across jurisdictions, craft and stakeholder groups. If you have any feedback on its content and you wish to add to the discussion please contact the Roadmap Lead Investigator – Prof Bogda Koczwara on Bogda.koczwara@flinders.edu.au
