Cancer Research is vital in the fight against cancer. It helps build our knowledge and understanding of cancer so that we are continually improving ways of detecting and diagnosing cancer, and developing more targeted cancer treatments to improved patient care


IMG_9565Clinical Trial Units of the Sydney West Cancer Network conduct important research into new medicines and treatments and new ways to use current treatments. Clinical trials increase our knowledge about cancer and help in the search for better outcomes for patients and families.

Participating in a clinical trial is always rewarding as the patient will make a contribution to the development of better and more successful treatments for future cancer sufferers.
