1. Overview

Chief Executive Officer's Review

I am pleased to present Cancer Australia’s Annual Report 2019-20, and to reflect on the agency’s accomplishments and efforts to reduce the impact of cancer, address disparities and improve the outcomes of people affected by cancer in Australia.

In 2019-20, Cancer Australia’s work was underpinned by the agency’s strong performance framework, which included Cancer Australia’s Portfolio Budget Statement 2019-20; Corporate Plan 2019-20; and Business Plan 2019-20. Cancer Australia’s Reconciliation Action Plan 2019-21 also informed the work undertaken by the agency.

Cancer Australia provided leadership in national cancer control and advanced appropriate cancer care; funded priority research and strengthened national cancer data; and promoted cancer awareness and provided evidence-based information about cancer to the community, in line with the agency’s key delivery objectives.

The results achieved in respect of these objectives are discussed in Part 3 of this Annual Report; and information on Cancer Australia’s management and accountability, including financial results, is provided in Part 4.

As outlined below, Cancer Australia progressed a number of initiatives in 2019-20 to provide leadership in national cancer control and advance appropriate cancer care, including undertaking an enquiry into lung cancer screening, developing resources to support cancer care during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, publishing guidance and other resources, progressing initiatives to address disparities in outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer, and driving the uptake of the shared follow up model of care for early breast cancer.

Cancer Australia provided leadership in national cancer control through conducting of an enquiry into the prospects, process and delivery of a national lung cancer screening program in Australia, in response to an invitation from the Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt MP. The Lung Cancer Screening Enquiry considers the evidence and requirements to support a targeted lung cancer screening program in Australia; the design of a national targeted lung cancer screening program for the Australian setting; and how to effectively deliver a national targeted lung cancer screening program in Australia. The enquiry has been underpinned by a robust, multifaceted and consultative approach. Cancer Australia will deliver a report on the enquiry to the Minister for Health next financial year (by October 2020).

Overview

2 Cancer Australia Annual Report 2019-20

Another major body of work undertaken by the agency in 2019-20 to provide leadership in national cancer control and advance appropriate cancer care, relates to the suite of initiatives progressed to address the challenges to cancer care presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. These initiatives included developing a conceptual framework for optimal management of cancer during the pandemic, launching an information hub on the Cancer Australia website to support access to

evidence-based information and guidance about cancer and COVID-19, and developing a series of awareness campaigns to address the concern that fewer people were presenting to their doctors with cancer symptoms, potentially resulting in delays in cancer diagnosis and treatment during the pandemic.

Cancer Australia also released a number of publications in 2019-20 to advance appropriate cancer care. These included the release of the Cancer Australia Statement — Influencing best practice in metastatic breast cancer (the Statement); Investigating symptoms of lung cancer: a guide for all health professionals (the Guide); and the Risk factors for endometrial cancer webpage on Cancer Australia’s website.

The Cancer Australia Statement — Influencing best practice in metastatic breast cancer identifies 10 agreed priority areas in the management of metastatic breast cancer and aims to reduce unwarranted variations in care and outcomes. This resource represents the culmination of a detailed evidence review and consultation with experts and key stakeholders across Australia.

The Investigating symptoms of lung cancer: a guide for all health professionals (the Guide) assists health professionals with the identification and appropriate investigation of symptoms that may be lung cancer and supports the timely referral of patients into the multidisciplinary diagnostic pathway. The accompanying Evidence Report supports the recommendations in the guide and includes additional recommendations to facilitate referral and patient support.

The Risk factors for endometrial cancer webpage on Cancer Australia’s website is targeted at women and health professionals to provide them with information regarding the risk factors associated with endometrial cancer. The content for this webpage is based on Cancer Australia’s publication Risk factors for endometrial cancer: A review of the evidence report. This report contains a synthesis and summary of the most up-to-date, quality evidence across a range of key risk and protective factors, as well as other factors for which the evidence is inconclusive.

Cancer Australia also provided leadership in national cancer control by publishing foundational resources to support the uptake of shared follow-up and survivorship care for early breast cancer. These resources support a best practice model of shared follow-up care for early breast cancer, provide advice to both consumers and health professionals to assist in the development of a Shared Care Plan, and outline the key principles underpinning the delivery of shared follow-up and survivorship care for early breast cancer.

In 2019-20, Cancer Australia continued its important work in addressing disparities in cancer outcomes by developing A guide to implementing the optimal care pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer, to further support culturally appropriate and responsive health care. The Guide is a companion to the Optimal Care Pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer (OCP) and is designed to support health services and clinicians in the planning and delivery of culturally safe cancer care.

Further to this, Cancer Australia published a new section of the National Cancer Control Indicators (NCCI) website, ‘the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Control Indicators’, which includes information on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Monitoring and Reporting Framework and updated data measures for risk factors, screening, immunisation, treatment, and outcomes. Cancer Australia, in accordance with advice provided by the Leadership Group on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Control, also identified the following as priority areas for development and future collection: multidisciplinary care; patient and carer experiences; cancer awareness and beliefs; and palliative care.

Cancer Australia highly values Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures and histories and is strongly committed to reconciliation. The agency has embarked on the journey to make reconciliation an increasingly lived and vital element in its approach to reducing the impact of cancer, addressing disparities and improving the health outcomes of people affected by cancer. To support this journey, the agency’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2019-21 outlines ideas and actions regarding ways that the organisation collectively, and staff individually, can contribute to closing the

Overview

gap in health outcomes. The RAP represents the views, ideas and values of the organisation with ownership of the RAP being embraced by all staff at Cancer Australia. Activities undertaken in 2019-20 under the RAP include: observing key Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dates, such as NAIDOC Week, National Close the Gap day, and National Reconciliation Week; and building staff capacity through presentations by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Cancer Australia has also made a conscious effort to procure and engage the services of Indigenous businesses in project work and asset management.

My personal commitment to reconciliation is deep and I am proud to be the CEO of an organisation that is committed to learning and growing in cultural sensitivity and championing reconciliation both in word and in deed.

Cancer Australia continued to fund priority cancer research in 2019-20 through a number of initiatives, including the awarding of research grants through Cancer Australia’s Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS), fast tracking international collaborations under the Fighting Childhood Cancer measure, providing funding support to Australia’s 14 Multi-Site Collaborative Cancer Clinical Trials Groups and four National Technical Services and through continuing to lead and administer the Australian Brain Cancer Mission, in collaboration with the Department of Health, on behalf of the Australian Government.

Through the PdCCRS, Cancer Australia partnered with non-government organisations to coordinate and maximise funding of cancer research at a national level. In 2019-20 Cancer Australia, together with eight Funding Partners, awarded 30 cancer research grants totalling $10.7 million in priority areas covering a range of cancers. Six of these grants addressed research priorities in childhood cancers of low survival and were funded through the Fighting Childhood Cancer measure. Two of these grants

leveraged international funding from partners Susan G. Komen, and World Cancer Research to support Australian researchers.

Under the Fighting Childhood Cancer measure, Cancer Australia continued to provide funding to the Australian and New Zealand Children’s Haematology/Oncology Group (ANZCHOG) to fast-track two international collaborations for paediatric brain cancer research. This funding supported the participation of Australian children with brain cancer in both the Low-Grade Glioma (LGG) Avastin international phase II clinical trial and, in the Access to Innovative Molecular diagnostic Profiling for paediatric brain tumours (AIM BRAIN) project. Other funding partners involved in the support of the AIM BRAIN project include the Robert Connor Dawes Foundation and Carrie's Beanies 4 Brain Cancer.

Cancer Australia continued its support for 14 Australian Multi-site Collaborative Cancer Clinical Trials Groups (CTGs) and four National Technical Services (NTSs). In 2019-20, Cancer Australia provided a total of $6.66 million in funding to the Collaborative Cancer Clinical Trials Groups to support the development of industry-independent cancer clinical trial protocols to the stage of applications for grant funding. A further $1.125 million was provided to four National Technical Services to assist them in building the capacity of CTGs to develop industry-independent cancer clinical trial protocols. Together, the work of the CTGs and NTSs contribute to generating the evidence base for best-practice care for people diagnosed with cancer.

Cancer Australia continued to lead and administer the Australian Brain Cancer Mission (the Mission) in collaboration with the Health and Medical Research Office of the Department of Health, on behalf of the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF). During 2019-20 the Mission received an additional $8.36 million in funding through the MRFF and Funding Partners, bringing the Mission’s total funding to $133 million as at 30 June 2020. This includes $60.26 million from the Australian Government through the MRFF, and a further $72.75 million from 12 funding partners. As at 30 June 2020, there were 14 active MRFF-funded projects funded under the Mission. Three of these projects were co-funded by Funding Partners, Carrie’s Beanies 4 Brain Cancer and the Mark Hughes Foundation.

To strengthen national cancer data capacity, Cancer Australia published updated sociodemographic data analyses for a range of cancer control measures, including: incidence, survival, mortality, and prevalence of all cancers combined and 17 individual cancer types. Updated data for breast and colorectal screening program indicators were also published on the NCCI website. Further to this, Cancer Australia established agreements with the Commonwealth (AIHW), NSW and ACT to access and link cancer treatment data. Obtaining approvals for data linkage is an important prerequisite for progressing further detailed reporting about cancer stage at diagnosis, treatments received and subsequent survival outcome.

Overview

4 Cancer Australia Annual Report 2019-20

To promote cancer awareness and provide information about cancer to the community, Cancer Australia utilised multiple approaches and communication tools, including the Cancer Australia website and social media (including Twitter, YouTube and e-alerts). The Cancer Australia website continued to provide a centralised source of trusted, evidence-based information for consumers, health professionals, researchers, educators, decision makers and the community. In 2019-20, the Cancer Australia website achieved 1,260,934 visits and 74 new evidence-based resources were added. A total of 347 resources were available to the community through the Cancer Australia website on 30 June 2020.

2. About Cancer Australia As the Australian Government’s national cancer control agency, Cancer Australia provides national leadership in cancer control for Australians affected by cancer.

Cancer Australia achieves its purpose (see below) by promoting appropriate cancer care, funding priority research, strengthening national cancer data capacity, promoting cancer awareness, and providing evidence-based information about cancer to the community.

In 2020, an estimated 145,483 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Australia, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer.[1] Cancer remains a leading cause of death in Australia with 48,099 people expected to die from cancer in 2020.[1][2] Cancer is also the leading cause of fatal disease burden accounting for 34% of the fatal burden of disease in Australia in 2015.[3]

It is also noteworthy that more people in Australia are living longer after a diagnosis with cancer. Over the past three and a half decades Australia has seen the five-year relative survival for all cancers combined increase from 50.5% in 1987-91 to 69.2% in 2012-16.[1]

A strategic, coordinated and collaborative approach to cancer control that is evidence-based remains imperative to improving cancer outcomes. The agency proactively liaises with a wide range of groups and health care providers with an interest in cancer. Cancer Australia works across

multiple sectors, partnering with consumers, health professionals, professional colleges, researchers and research funding bodies, non-government organisations, other health portfolio agencies, and state and territory governments to drive improvements in national cancer control. The agency also uses this approach to address disparities in health outcomes, particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people living in rural and remote Australia.

Cancer Australia will continue to leverage and maximise these collaborations to enable the agency to drive a shared agenda in cancer control, and foster engagement and collaboration across the health system. Cancer Australia will build on and develop new collaborations across public, private and community sectors as required to improve cancer outcomes and enhance the patient experience.

In my opinion, these Annual Performance Statements are based on properly maintained records, accurately reflect the performance of the entity and comply with subsection 39(2) of the PGPA Act.

These Annual Performance Statements are presented in the context of Cancer Australia’s purpose and program objectives to facilitate clear line of sight between the agency’s intended outcomes and actual performance.

Purpose

Cancer Australia’s purpose is to minimise the impact of cancer, address disparities and improve the health outcomes of people affected by cancer in Australia by providing national leadership in cancer control (Outcome 1: Population Health).

Cancer Australia’s program of work contributes toward the achievement of the following outcome: Minimised impacts of cancer, including through national leadership in cancer control with targeted research and clinical trials; evidence informed clinical practice; strengthened national data capacity; community and consumer information and support. (PBS 2019-20; page 265)

Cancer Australia’s program objectives for 2019-20 were:

A. Providing leadership in national cancer control and promoting appropriate cancer care

B. Funding priority research and strengthening national data capacity, and

C. Promoting cancer awareness and providing information about cancer to the community (2019-20 PBS page 265; 2019-20 Corporate Plan pages 8-10).

Cancer Australia’s performance in relation to these program objectives, and the performance criteria associated with them, is provided in the tables below. There is a separate table for each program objective. In each case, the agency has met all but one of its 2019-20 reference points or targets.

2019-20 Corporate Plan, page 8 Achieved See below

In 2019-20 Cancer Australia translated evidence to drive clinical best practice on the most appropriate interventions across the continuum of cancer care through the publication of research and guidance in specific cancers. This is demonstrated by the release of the following resources:

• The release and promotion of Risk factors for endometrial cancer on Cancer Australia’s website. The web content provides evidence-based information for women and health professionals about more than 30 factors associated with risk for endometrial cancer in the Australian context. The content for this webpage is based on Risk factors for endometrial cancer: A review of the evidence, a Cancer Australia publication that contains a synthesis and summary of the most up-to-date, quality evidence across a range of key risk and protective factors, as well as other factors for which the evidence is inconclusive. Risk factors are grouped by personal and lifestyle factors, family history and genetics, reproductive factors, and medical history and medications.

• The release and dissemination of the Cancer Australia Statement — Influencing best practice in metastatic breast cancer. The Statement identifies 10 agreed priority areas in the management of metastatic breast cancer which, when implemented, will reduce unwarranted variations in care and outcomes. It represents the culmination of a rigorous evidence review and prioritisation process involving experts and key stakeholders with the practices therein having the support of key clinical colleges, cancer and consumer organisations. The Statement aims to encourage health professionals to reflect on their clinical practice in line with the 10 evidence-based practices to maximise clinical benefit, minimize harm and deliver patient-centred care.

• The publication of the Investigating symptoms of lung cancer: a guide for all health professionals (the Guide). The Guide is designed to assist health professionals, particularly those in primary care such as general practitioners, to investigate symptomatic people with suspected lung cancer and support their early and rapid referral into the multidisciplinary diagnostic pathway. The Guide provides a systematic, step-by-step approach to identify the most appropriate course of action for symptomatic patients and includes optimal referral timeframes. The Guide will also assist health professionals in the COVID-19 pandemic to consider the possibility of lung cancer in patients with persistent respiratory symptoms.

Leadership in the development of innovative evidence-based models of cancer care

Innovative models of cancer care are developed and progressed

2019-20 Corporate Plan, page 8. Achieved See below

Cancer Australia’s leadership in the development of innovative models of cancer care is well demonstrated by the key role the agency has played in developing and progressing the shared follow-up and survivorship model of care for early breast cancer and low risk endometrial cancer. Building on its work in previous years, during 2019-20 Cancer Australia released foundational resources to support the implementation of shared follow-up and survivorship care for early breast cancer. These resources provide evidence-based information and education for patients, health professionals, and health services to support best-practice delivery of the model of care. These resources are:

• Shared follow-up care for early breast cancer: summary of evidence, which highlights key findings from Cancer Australia’s program of work, undertaken between 2009 and 2015, to develop and evaluate a best practice model of shared follow-up care for early breast cancer.

• Shared Care Plan for early breast cancer follow-up and survivorship care template, which is a tool developed to assist the patient, GP and specialist to manage follow-up and survivorship care together. The Shared Care Plan is the primary means of establishing the shared care arrangement, and aims to facilitate effective communication, define responsibilities for care providers, and support the delivery of best-practice care.

• Rapid Access Request template, which is designed to be used by the GP and specialist when follow-up raises a clinical issue requiring urgent specialist consultation or advice.

• Principles of shared follow-up care for early breast cancer, which are designed to underpin the delivery of shared follow-up and survivorship care for early breast cancer by health professionals and health services.

The resources are available on Cancer Australia’s website at canceraustralia.gov.au/clinical-best-practice/shared-follow-care/early-breast-cancer.

Cancer Australia’s work in developing and progressing the shared follow-up and survivorship model for low risk endometrial cancer included:

• Completing a comprehensive body of work to investigate appropriateness, effectiveness and feasibility of a shared follow-up and survivorship care model for women with low-risk endometrial cancer, including developing evidence-based resources to support the uptake of a shared care model in Australia.

• The undertaking of an evidence review that outlines the evidence base that supports Cancer Australia’s shared follow-up and survivorship care model for women with low-risk endometrial cancer. The primary audience is health professionals and other stakeholders involved in the uptake and implementation of a shared model of follow-up care for women with low-risk endometrial cancer.

Priorities of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework actioned through a shared effort

Opportunities identified and leveraged to action the priorities of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework

2019-20 Corporate Plan, page 8. Achieved See below

To progress priorities of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework, in 2019-20 Cancer Australia developed A guide to implementing the optimal care pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer, a companion to the Optimal Care Pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer (OCP) which is designed to act as a bridge between the cancer-specific priorities of the OCP and broader guidance, frameworks and policies that support culturally appropriate and responsive health care. The OCP provides guidance to health practitioners and service planners on optimal care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer, across the cancer continuum. This leverages Priority Five of Cancer Australia’s National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework to ‘ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people affected by cancer receive optimal and culturally appropriate treatment, services, and supportive and palliative care’.

To underpin strengthening the capacity of cancer related services and systems to deliver good quality, integrated services, Cancer Australia progressed initiatives related to enhancing data availability. During 2019-20, priority measures in Cancer Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Monitoring and Reporting Framework were updated following input from Cancer Australia’s Leadership Group on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Control. Measures for: multidisciplinary care; patient and carer experiences; cancer awareness and beliefs; and palliative care were identified in collaboration with the Leadership Group, as priority areas for development and future collection.

Cancer Australia also published a new section on the National Cancer Control Indicators (NCCI) website, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Control Indicators website that brings together trusted national data to inform where our efforts can be best placed to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cancer outcomes. The Indicators are designed to monitor performance across the seven priority areas outlined in the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework and align with the Optimal Care Pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer. These Indicators are designed to lead to better care and enhanced outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with cancer.

• Developing and publishing an online platform for up to date evidence-based information on over 30 risk factors for endometrial cancer, supported by a technical report in a digital format that is accessible to the community as well as clinicians, consumers, health policy makers, researchers and media.

Analysis

Cancer Australia met or exceeded all but one of its reference points or targets relating to its 2019-20 program objectives, as outlined in its PBS and Corporate Plan, these are: providing leadership in national cancer control and promoting appropriate cancer care; funding priority research and strengthening national data capacity; and promoting cancer awareness and providing information about cancer to the community.

In 2019-20 there were no changes to Cancer Australia’s purpose or organisational capability.

However, there has been a significant change in Cancer Australia’s operating environment with the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic. This has not only impacted Cancer Australia, but has had significant implications for the whole of government both in Australia and globally. This notwithstanding, the COVID-19 pandemic did not impact on the agency’s ability to meets its program objectives and achieve its purpose in 2019-20.

Cancer Australia’s work in 2019-20 was supported through its budget allocation.

The agency’s performance management framework ensured the alignment of efforts with Cancer Australia’s purpose, and its program objectives. This enabled Cancer Australia to report, analyse and monitor its performance for Financial Year 2019-20.

Cancer Australia was successful in its performance for 2019-20, as measured against its program objectives and purpose, and demonstrated Cancer Australia’s ability to adapt to a change in its operating environment.

Employment arrangements

Cancer Australia staff at non-Senior Executive Service (non-SES) level are employed under the terms and conditions of the Cancer Australia Enterprise Agreement 2016-19. A Determination under subsection 24(1) of the Public Service Act 1999 was established in August 2019 to provide non-SES staff with increases to their existing salaries and to allowances for which they are eligible under the terms of the Enterprise Agreement. The increases in pay and allowance were effective from 24 December 2019 to 24 December 2021. Twelve staff are in receipt of individual flexibility arrangements under clause 25 of the Enterprise Agreement. Non-salary benefits provided during the period by Cancer Australia to its staff were motor vehicle allowances (three officers) and car parks (one officer).

Performance pay

No member of Cancer Australia’s staff was employed under performance-based remuneration conditions in 2019-20.

Training and development

Cancer Australia provides financial and leave assistance to its staff enrolled in external study or training that is relevant to the operational needs of the agency. Each staff member has the opportunity to identify and access appropriate training through the organisation’s Performance Development Program.

During 2019-20, Cancer Australia continued the Australian Public Service Development Strategy, which included in-house training programs in the areas of project management and team management. Cancer Australia also engaged external providers to deliver training in areas such as strategic leadership, leadership development, data analysis and statistics and human resources. During the COVID-19 lockdown, Cancer Australia partnered with the Australian Institute of Management (AIM) to provide Cancer Australia staff with virtual online courses. Cancer Australia provided staff with additional development opportunities through project work and assignment of higher duties.

Ministerial and parliamentary coordination

During 2019-20, Cancer Australia provided high-quality, timely and evidence-based information to the Minister for Health on national cancer control related issues. The agency continued to collaborate closely with the Department of Health to support the Minister and implement Australian Government policies.

Statement of Comprehensive Income Budget Variance Commentary

Explanations are only provided where the variance is greater than 10% of the Original Budget. If the variance is greater than 10%, but small in the overall context of the financial statements, judgement was used to determine if an explanation would be useful in analysing Cancer Australia’s performance.

Suppliers and Grants

After the Original Budget was first presented to Parliament, Cancer Australia received additional funds from various Memorandum of Understanding agreements for specialist contractors to achieve the outcomes as outlined in the agreements. Further, some of the funds were included in the Original Budget to be paid as Grants, resulting in an increase in Suppliers and an underspend in Grants.

Rendering of services

At the time of budget preparation, additional funding of approximately $1.5m received through Memorandum of Understanding agreements with another Government Department was unknown. Therefore, it is not budgeted. The additional funding received was subsequently utilised through the payment of Grants and other operational costs.

2 Cancer Australia adopted AASB 1058 Income of Not-for-Profit Entities using the modified retrospective approach, under which the cumulative effect of initial application is recognised in retained earnings at 1 July 2019. Accordingly, the comparative information presented for 2018-19 is not restated, that is, it is presented as previously reported under the various applicable AASBs and related interpretations.

Statement of Financial Position Budget Variance Commentary

Explanations are only provided where the variance is greater than 10% of the Original Budget. If the variance is greater than 10%, but small in the overall context of the financial statements, judgement was used to determine if an explanation would be useful in analysing Cancer Australia’s performance.

Trade and other receivables

Trade and other receivables mainly comprises of Appropriation receivable and Administered receivable. The 2018-19 and 2019-20 Appropriation were budgeted to be drawn down in full. Other revenue sources and lower than expected average employee numbers resulted in the Appropriation not being fully utilised in prior financial years and resulted in a receivable balance higher than originally budgeted. The Administered receivable relates to the Administered expenses, which are initially paid by Departmental and subsequentially charged to Administered. The same amount is presented as payables on the Administered Schedule of Assets and Liabilities.

Property, plant and equipment, and intangibles

The increase is due to purchase of an expense management system and new video conference system in 2019-20 and the establishment of a new website for Breast Cancer Risk Factors in 2018-19, which were not included in the Original Budget.

Suppliers and other payables

The budget variance relates to the timing of payments. A large number of deliverables were finalised, but not paid before 30 June 2020 resulting in a high payables balance at year end.

Other provisions

The variance in other provisions is due to an increase in the make good provision in relation to the property leased in Sydney. The provision was reviewed and adjusted after submission of the Original Budget.

Retained surplus

The impact of adopting new revenue accounting standards was not included in the Original Budget.

Accounting Policy

Equity injections

Amounts appropriated which are designated as ‘equity injections’ for a year (less any formal reduction) and Departmental Capital Budgets (DCBs) are recognised directly in contributed equity in that year.

Statement of Changes in Equity Budget Variance Commentary

Explanations are only provided where the variance is greater than 10% of the Original Budget. If the variance is greater than 10%, but small in the overall context of the financial statements, judgement was used to determine if an explanation would be useful in analysing Cancer Australia’s performance.

Adjustment on initial application of AASB 1058

At the time of preparing the Original Budget the impact of adopting the new revenue accounting standards was still unknown and therefore not estimated.

Cash Flow Statement Budget Variance Commentary

Explanations are only provided where the variance is greater than 10% of the Original Budget. If the variance is greater than 10%, but small in the overall context of the financial statements, judgement was used to determine if an explanation would be useful in analysing Cancer Australia’s performance.

Appropriations

The 2018-19 and 2019-20 appropriations were budgeted to be drawn in full. The variance represents the timing difference of payments to employees, suppliers and additional section 74 revenue received.

Rendering of services

At the time the Original Budget was prepared, the timing of additional funding through Memorandum of Understanding agreements with Department of Health was unknown resulting in a higher than anticipated inflow of funds.

Net GST received and paid

Cancer Australia is required to make GST payments on eligible goods and services. The net GST received represents the refund of those amounts from the Australia Taxation Office (ATO). GST estimates are based on prior years' trends and fluctuate from year to year based on the payments for goods and services. In 2019-20, Cancer Australia claimed more GST from the ATO due to higher than anticipated payments to suppliers. The net GST received was used to settle commitments, rather than drawing on additional funding.

Suppliers

Funding of supplier payments through Memorandum of Understanding agreements with Department of Health was unknown at the time the Original Budget was prepared.

Purchase of property, plant and equipment and intangibles

During 2019-20, Cancer Australia staff have been required to work from home due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This has meant Cancer Australia's digital transformation continued to be progressed and developed since 2018-19, with purchases of an expense management system (SAP Concur), laptops and video conferencing hardware and software.

At the time of the preparation of the Original Budget, Suppliers and Grant payments were estimated. Actual expenditure may vary from year to year depending upon Grant applications received and awarded. Furthermore, when the Original Budget was prepared, suppliers expenses were under estimated because actual Cancer Clinical Trials activities were higher than expected.

Budget Variance Commentary

Explanations are only provided where the variance is greater than 10% of the Original Budget. If the variance is greater than 10%, but small in the overall context of the financial statements, judgement was used to determine if an explanation would be useful in analysing Cancer Australia’s performance.

Cash and cash equivalents

The variance is due to drawdowns only being processed at the time the funds are required. As a result, the cash balance is lower than budget.

Trade and other receivables

Trade and other receivables comprise GST receivable from the ATO and intercompany charges for Cancer Australia Departmental. The budget variance relates to the timing of payments.

Suppliers

Supplier payables vary year to year dependent on the timing of work delivered by suppliers and the payment terms of contracts. In 2019-20, a number of deliverables were finalised, but not paid before 30 June 2020.

Grants

In 2019-20, Grant contracts were executed later in the year resulting in a higher payable at the end of the reporting period when compared to the Original Budget.

The repayments were receipted and paid into the Official Public Account (OPA) during the current financial year.

Accounting Policy

Administered Cash Transfers to and from the Official Public Account

Revenue collected by Cancer Australia on behalf of the Government is Administered revenue. Collections are transferred to the OPA maintained by the Department of Finance. Conversely, cash is drawn from the OPA to make payments under Parliamentary appropriation on behalf of Government. These transfers to and from the OPA are adjustments to the administered cash held by the entity on behalf of the Government and reported as such in the schedule of administered cash flows and in the administered reconciliation schedule.

58 Cancer Australia Annual Report 2019-20

Note 1: Overview

1.1 Objectives of Cancer Australia

Cancer Australia is an Australian Government controlled entity. It is a non-corporate Commonwealth entity and a not-for-profit entity. The objectives of Cancer Australia as specified in the Cancer Australia Act 2006 are to: provide national leadership in cancer control, guide scientific improvements to cancer prevention, treatment and care; coordinate and liaise between the wide range of groups and health care providers with an interest in cancer care and provide advice and make recommendations to the Australian Government on cancer policy and priorities.

1.2 Basis of Preparation of the Financial Statements

The financial statements are general purpose financial statements and are required by section 42 of the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 (the PGPA Act).

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with:

• Public Governance, Performance and Accountability (Financial Reporting) Rule 2015 (FRR); and

• Australian Accounting Standards and Interpretations - Reduced Disclosure Requirements issued by the Australian Accounting Standards Board (AASB) that apply for the reporting period.

The financial statements have been prepared on an accrual basis and in accordance with the historical cost convention, except for certain assets and liabilities at fair value. Except where stated, no allowance is made for the effect of changing prices on the results or the financial position. The financial statements are presented in Australian dollars.

1.3 New Accounting Standards

The following new standards and interpretations that were issued prior to the sign-off date and were applicable to the current reporting period had a material effect on the entity’s financial statements:

AASB 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers / AASB 1058 Income of Not-For-Profit Entities

AASB 15, AASB 2016-8 and AASB 1058 became effective 1 July 2019.

AASB 15 establishes a comprehensive framework for determining whether, how much and when revenue is recognised. It replaces existing revenue recognition guidance, including AASB 118 Revenue, AASB 111 Construction Contracts and Interpretation 13 Customer Loyalty Programmes. The core principle of AASB 15 is that an entity recognises revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services.

AASB 1058 is relevant in circumstances where AASB 15 does not apply. AASB 1058 replaces most of the not-for-profit (NFP) provisions of AASB 1004 Contributions and applies to transactions where the consideration to acquire an asset is significantly less than fair value principally to enable the entity to further its objectives, and where volunteer services are received.

The details of the changes in accounting policies, transitional provisions and adjustments are disclosed below and in the relevant notes to the financial statements.

Cancer Australia adopted AASB 1058 using the modified retrospective approach, under which the cumulative effect of initial application is recognised in retained earnings at 1 July 2019. Accordingly, the comparative information presented for 2018-19 is not restated, that is, it is presented as previously reported under the various applicable AASBs and related interpretations.

Appendix A: Audited Financial Statements

59

Under the new income recognition model Cancer Australia shall first determine whether an enforceable agreement exists and whether the promises to transfer goods or services to the customer are ‘sufficiently specific’. If an enforceable agreement exists and the promises are ‘sufficiently specific’ (to a transaction or part of a transaction), Cancer Australia applies the general AASB 15 principles to determine the appropriate revenue recognition. If these criteria are not met, Cancer Australia shall consider whether AASB 1058 applies.

In terms of AASB 1058, Cancer Australia is required to recognise volunteer services at fair value if those services would have been purchased if not provided voluntarily, and the fair value of those services can be measured reliably.

Impact on transition The impact on transition is summarised below:

Departmental

Liabilities

Unearned Income (927,289)

Total liabilities (927,289)

Total adjustment recognised in retained earnings 927,289

AASB 16 Leases

Cancer Australia adopted AASB 16 using the modified retrospective approach, under which the cumulative effect of initial application is recognised in retained earnings at 1 July 2019. Accordingly, the comparative information presented for 2018-19 is not restated, that is, it is presented as previously reported under AASB 117 and related interpretations.

Cancer Australia elected to apply the practical expedient to not reassess whether a contract is, or contains a lease at the date of initial application. Contracts entered into before the transition date that were not identified as leases under AASB 117 were not reassessed. The definition of a lease under AASB 16 was applied only to contracts entered into or changed on or after 1 July 2019.

AASB 16 provides for certain optional practical expedients, including those related to the initial adoption of the standard. Cancer Australia applied the following practical expedients when applying AASB 16 to leases previously classified as operating leases under AASB 117:

• Apply a single discount rate to a portfolio of leases with reasonably similar characteristics;

• Exclude initial direct costs from the measurement of right-of-use assets at the date of initial application for leases where the right-of-use asset was determined as if AASB 16 had been applied since the commencement date;

• Reliance on previous assessments on whether leases are onerous as opposed to preparing an impairment review under AASB 136 Impairment of assets as at the date of initial application; and

• Applied the exemption not to recognise right-of-use assets and liabilities for leases with less than 12 months of lease term remaining as of the date of initial application."

As a lessee, Cancer Australia previously classified leases as operating or finance leases based on its assessment of whether the lease transferred substantially all of the risks and rewards of ownership. AASB 16 requires lessees to recognise right-of-use assets and lease liabilities for most leases. However, Cancer Australia has elected not to recognise right-of-use assets and lease liabilities for some leases of low value assets based on the value of the underlying asset when new or for short-term leases with a lease term of 12 months or less.

Appendix A: Audited Financial Statements

60 Cancer Australia Annual Report 2019-20

Impact on transition

The only lease that Cancer Australia had during 2019-20 was the lease for the Sydney property which expired on 30 June 2020. It is Cancer Australia's view that the lease will not be renewed and as a result the lease is classified as a short-term lease. The lease payments in relation to the short-term lease are therefore recognised as expenses.

1.4 Significant Accounting Judgements and Estimates

In the process of applying the accounting policies listed in this note, Cancer Australia has made judgements that would have a significant impact on the amounts recorded in the financial statements.

No accounting assumptions or estimates have been identified that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next accounting period.

In accordance with AASB 13 Fair Value Measurement Cancer Australia has applied estimations of assets at fair value. Estimations of employee long service leave entitlements have also been applied in accordance with AASB 119 Employee Benefits. Cancer Australia uses the short-hand method to calculate employee long service leave entitlements, discounted using the government bond rate issued by the Department of Finance.

1.5 Taxation

Cancer Australia is exempt from all forms of taxation except Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) and the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

1.6 Reporting of Administered Activities

The Administered Schedules of Comprehensive Income, Assets and Liabilities, Administered Reconciliation Schedule and Administered Cash Flow Statement reflect the Government’s transactions, through Cancer Australia, with parties outside the Government.

Except where otherwise stated, administered items are accounted for on the same basis and using the same policies as for Departmental items, including the application of Australian Accounting Standards.

Note 2: Events After the Reporting Period

Cancer Australia is not aware of any events occurring after 30 June 2020 that have the potential to significantly affect the on-going structure or activities of either Cancer Australia's Administered or Departmental functions.

Leave and other entitlements 970,604 981,027

Total employee benefits 9,160,564 8,624,023

Accounting Policy

Liabilities for ‘short-term' employee benefits and termination benefits expected within twelve months of the end of reporting period are measured at their nominal amounts.

Other long-term employee benefits are measured as net total of the present value of the defined benefit obligation at the end of the reporting period minus the fair value at the end of the reporting period of plan assets (if any) out of which the obligations are to be settled directly.

Leave and entitlements

The liability for employee benefits includes provision for annual leave and long service leave.

The leave liabilities are calculated on the basis of employees’ remuneration at the estimated salary rates that will be applied at the time the leave is taken, including Cancer Australia’s employer superannuation contribution rates to the extent that the leave is likely to be taken during service rather than paid out on termination.

The estimate of the present value of the liability takes into account attrition rates and pay increases through promotion and inflation.

Superannuation

Cancer Australia's staff are members of the Commonwealth Superannuation Scheme (CSS), the Public Sector Superannuation Scheme (PSS), or the PSS accumulation plan (PSSap), or other superannuation funds held outside the Australian Government.

The CSS and PSS are defined benefit schemes for the Australian Government. The PSSap is a defined contribution scheme.

The liability for defined benefits is recognised in the financial statements of the Australian Government and is settled by the Australian Government in due course. This liability is reported in the Department of Finance’s administered schedules and notes.

Cancer Australia makes employer contributions to the employees' defined benefit superannuation scheme at rates determined by an actuary to be sufficient to meet the current cost to the Government. Cancer Australia accounts for the contributions as if they were contributions to defined contribution plans.

The liability for superannuation recognised as at 30 June represents outstanding contributions for the final fortnight of the year.

Rendering of services

Revenue from the sale of goods is recognised when control has been transferred to the buyer. In relation to AASB 1058, Cancer Australia is required to recognise the amounts received as revenue upon receipt of the amount in the bank account.

Receivables for goods and services, which have 30 day terms (2018-19: 30 days), are recognised at the nominal amounts due less any impairment allowance account. Collectability of debts is reviewed at the end of the reporting period. Allowances are made when collectability of the debt is no longer probable.

Revenue from Government

Amounts appropriated for Departmental appropriations for the year (adjusted for any formal additions and reductions) are recognised as Revenue from Government when Cancer Australia gains control of the Appropriation, except for certain amounts that relate to activities that are reciprocal in nature, in which case revenue is recognised only when it has been earned. Appropriations receivable are recognised at their nominal amounts.

Notes:

1. There has been no change to valuation techniques.

2. Cancer Australia's assets are held for operational purposes and not held for the purposes of deriving a profit. The current use of all controlled assets is considered their highest and best use.

3. The remaining assets reported by Cancer Australia are not measured at fair value in the Statement of Financial Position.

Accounting Policy

Cancer Australia performs an internal management review of the fair value of its fixed assets at least once every 12 months. If a particular asset class experiences significant and volatile changes in fair value (i.e. where indicators suggest that the value of the class has changed materially since the previous reporting period), that class is subject to specific valuation in the reporting period, where practicable, regardless of the timing of the last review. The nature of Cancer Australia's assets are predominantly low value assets with a useful life of between 3 to 10 years.

Total as at 30 June 2020 262,182 346,887 609,069

Accounting Policy

Assets are recorded at cost on acquisition except as stated below. The cost of acquisition includes the fair value of assets transferred in exchange for consideration and liabilities undertaken. Financial assets are initially measured at their fair value plus transaction costs where appropriate.

Assets acquired at no cost, or for nominal consideration, are initially recognised as assets and income at their fair value at the date of acquisition, unless acquired as a consequence of restructuring of administrative arrangements. In the latter case, assets are initially recognised as contributions by owners at the amounts at which they were recognised in the transferor's accounts immediately prior to the restructuring.

Asset recognition threshold

Purchases of property, plant and equipment are recognised initially at cost in the Statement of Financial Position, except for purchases costing less than $2,000, which are expensed in the year of acquisition (other than where they form part of a group of similar items which are significant in total).

Revaluations

Following initial recognition at cost, property, plant and equipment are carried at fair value less subsequent accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Valuation reviews are conducted with sufficient frequency to ensure that the carrying amounts of assets did not differ materially from the assets’ fair values as at the reporting date. The regularity of independent valuations dependeds upon the nature of the assets and volatility of movements in market values for the relevant assets.

Revaluation adjustments are made on a class basis. Any revaluation increment is credited to equity under the heading of asset revaluation reserve except to the extent that it reversed a

Appendix A: Audited Financial Statements

67

previous revaluation decrement of the same asset class that was previously recognised in the surplus/deficit.

Depreciation

Depreciable property, plant and equipment assets are written-off to their estimated residual values over their estimated useful lives to Cancer Australia using, in all cases, the straight-line method of depreciation.

Depreciation rates (useful lives), residual values and methods are reviewed at each reporting date and necessary adjustments are recognised in the current, or current and future reporting periods, as appropriate.

Depreciation rates applying to each class of depreciable asset are based on the following useful lives:

2020 2019

Property, Plant & Equipment 3 to 10 years 3 to 10 years

Impairment

All assets were assessed for impairment at 30 June 2020. Where indications of impairment exist, the asset’s recoverable amount is estimated and an impairment adjustment made if the asset’s recoverable amount is less than its carrying amount. No indicators of impairment were identified.

The recoverable amount of an asset is the higher of its fair value less costs of disposal and its value in use. Value in use is the present value of the future cash flows expected to be derived from the asset. Where the future economic benefit of an asset is not primarily dependent on the asset’s ability to generate future cash flows, and the asset would be replaced if Cancer Australia were deprived of the asset, its value in use is taken to be its depreciated replacement cost.

Derecognition

An item of property, plant and equipment is derecognised upon disposal or when no further future economic benefits are expected from its use or disposal.

Intangibles

Cancer Australia’s intangibles comprise purchased software and website costs. These assets are carried at cost less accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses.

Software and website costs are amortised on a straight-line basis over its anticipated useful life. The anticipated useful life of Cancer Australia’s intangibles is three years (2018-19: three years).

All software and website assets were assessed for indications of impairment as at 30 June 2020. No indicators of impairment were identified.

Accounting Policy

Contingent liabilities and contingent assets are not recognised in the Statement of Financial Position but are reported in the notes. They may arise from uncertainty as to the existence of a liability or asset or represent an asset or liability in respect of which the amount cannot be reliably measured. Contingent assets are disclosed when settlement is probable but not virtually certain and contingent liabilities are disclosed when settlement is greater than remote.

Note 11: Key Management Personnel Remuneration

Key management personnel are those persons having authority and responsibility for planning, directing and controlling the activities of the entity, directly or indirectly, including any director (whether executive or otherwise) of that entity. Cancer Australia has determined the key management personnel to be the Chief Executive Officer, Deputy CEO/Executive Director, Senior Executive Service Officers, General Manager Finance and Corporate Affairs and Chief Financial Officer and Ministers. Key management personnel remuneration is reported in the table below:

Such transactions include the payment or refund of taxes, receipt of a Medicare rebate or higher education loans. These transactions have not been separately disclosed in this note.

Significant transactions with related parties can include:

• the payments of grants or loans;

• purchases of goods and services;

• asset purchases, sales transfers or leases;

• debts forgiven; and

• guarantees.

Giving consideration to relationships with related entities, and transactions entered into during the reporting period by Cancer Australia, it has been determined that there are no related party transactions to be separately disclosed.

Accounting Policy

Financial assets

Cancer Australia is a non-financial entity whose financial assets are limited to trade receivables and bank deposits. Cancer Australia does not hold financial assets with the objective of realizing, cash flows through the sale of the assets (i.e. active buying / selling of instruments). Cancer Australia is not a trading entity whose business model is to realise cash flows through sales and managing the resultant trade receivables. Cancer Australia’s trade receivables relate to services provided and do not arise as a result of their primary business objectives. Accordingly, the receivables are more aligned to a basic lending arrangement whereby cash flows will be generated through the collection of the amounts outstanding.

Cancer Australia’s business model is to hold financial assets to collect the contractual cash flows and the cash flows relate solely to payments of interest and principal amounts.

Based on the above, Cancer Australia’s financial assets should subsequently be measured at amortised cost.

Amortised cost is determined using the effective interest method.

Effective interest method

Income is recognised on an effective interest rate basis for financial assets that are recognised at amortised cost.

Impairment of financial assets

Financial assets are assessed for impairment at the end of each reporting period based on Expected Credit Losses, using the general approach which measures the loss allowance based on an amount equal to lifetime expected credit losses where risk has significantly increased, or an amount equal to 12-month expected credit losses if risk has not increased.

The simplified approach for trade, contract and lease receivables is used. This approach always measures the loss allowance as the amount equal to the lifetime expected credit losses.

A write-off constitutes a derecognition event where the write-off directly reduces the gross carrying amount of the financial asset.

Financial liabilities

Financial liabilities are classified as other financial liabilities. Financial liabilities are recognised and derecognised upon ‘trade date’.

Financial liabilities at amortised cost

Financial liabilities are initially measured at fair value, net of transaction costs. These liabilities are subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, with interest expense recognised on an effective interest basis.

Supplier and other payables are recognised at amortised cost. Liabilities are recognised to the extent that the goods or services have been received (and irrespective of having been invoiced).

Accounting Policy

Cancer Australia adopted AASB 1058 using the modified retrospective approach, under which the cumulative effect of initial application is recognised in retained earnings at 1 July 2019. Accordingly, the comparative information presented for 2020 is not restated, that is, it is presented as previously reported under the various applicable AASBs and related interpretations.

Under the new income recognition model Cancer Australia shall first determine whether an enforceable agreement exists and whether the promises to transfer goods or services to the customer are ‘sufficiently specific’. If an enforceable agreement exists and the promises are ‘sufficiently specific’ (to a transaction or part of a transaction), Cancer Australia applies the general AASB 15 principles to determine the appropriate revenue recognition. If these criteria are not met, Cancer Australia shall consider whether AASB 1058 applies.

Grants

Cancer Australia administers a number of grants on behalf of the Commonwealth. Grant liabilities are recognised to the extent that (i) the services required to be performed by the grantee have been performed or (ii) the grant eligibility criteria have been satisfied, but payments due have not been made. When Government enters into an agreement to make these grants and services, but services have not been performed or criteria satisfied, this is considered a commitment.

Consultancies

During 2019-20, there were four new consultancies entered into totalling $82,051 (GST excl). Five ongoing consultancy contracts were active during 2019-20, involving total actual expenses of $578,391 (GST excl).

Annual Reports contain information about actual expenditure on contracts for consultancies. Information on the value of contracts and consultancies is available on the AusTender website tenders.gov.au.

Cancer Australia engages consultants as required to acquire specialist expertise, and to undertake research and investigation of particular cancer control issues to inform and assist in the agency’s decision making.

Prior to engaging consultants, the agency takes into account the skills and resources required for the task, the skills available internally, and the cost-effectiveness of engaging external expertise. The decision to engage a consultant is made in accordance with the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 and regulations (including the Commonwealth Procurement Rules) and relevant internal policies.

Disability reporting

Since 1994, Commonwealth non-corporate entities have reported on their performance as policy adviser, purchaser, employer, regulator and provider under the Commonwealth Disability Strategy. In 2007-08, reporting on the employer role was transferred to the Australian Public Service Commission’s State of the Service Report and the APS Statistical Bulletin.

These reports are available at apsc.gov.au. From 2010-11, departments and agencies have no longer been required to report on these functions.

The Commonwealth Disability Strategy has been overtaken by the National Disability Strategy 2010-20, which sets out a ten-year national policy framework to improve the lives of people with disability, promote participation and create a more inclusive society. A high-level two-yearly report will track progress against each of the six outcome areas of the strategy and present a picture of how people with a disability are faring. The first of these reports was made available in late 2014 and can be found at dss.gov.au.

Ecologically sustainable development and environmental performance

Section 516A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 requires Australian Government entities to detail their environmental performance and contribution to ecologically sustainable development in their annual reports.

In 2019-20 Cancer Australia maintained a range of measures which contributed to ecologically sustainable development, including:

• exclusive use of ecologically friendly printer paper, paper-based stationery items and cleaning products

• digitalisation of work processes and reduction in use of paper

• recycling of paper, cardboard, printer cartridges and waste

• setting printers to default to print on both sides of the paper and in black and white

• ensuring equipment such as desktop computers, laptops, photocopiers, dishwashers and printers incorporate energy-saving features.

All buildings in which Cancer Australia leases its office accommodation have a minimum National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) energy rating of 4.5 stars.

Cancer Australia will continue to consider ecologically sustainable development as part of its business management approach.

Exempt contracts

There were no contracts in excess of $10,000 entered into by Cancer Australia during 2019-20 that were exempt from being published on AusTender due to Freedom of Information (FOI) reasons.

Freedom of information

Entities subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) are required to publish information to the public as part of the Information Publication Scheme (IPS).

Each agency must display on its website a plan showing what information it publishes in accordance with the IPS requirements.

Cancer Australia displays an Information Publication Scheme Plan on its website listing the information it publishes and how it proposes to comply with IPS requirements. This is available at canceraustralia.gov.au/IPS.

Purchasing

In 2019-20, Cancer Australia sourced goods and services in accordance with the principles set out in the Commonwealth Procurement Rules.

The agency continued to reinforce procurement policies and procedures reflecting the need for compliance with these guidelines, focusing on:

• value for money

• encouraging competition

• efficient, effective, ethical and economical use of Australian Government resources

• accountability and transparency

• compliance with other Australian Government policies.

The agency also provides training and education, and support for staff in procurement and grants. All procurement and grant activity within the agency is reviewed to ensure compliance with legislative requirements and to maximise best practice.

Appendix C: Cancer Australia Advisory Groups

Cancer Australia’s Advisory Group structure supports the agency’s leadership role in national cancer control and the fulfilment of the agency’s purpose.

Advisory Group members represent a broad range of expertise, experiences and sectors. Consumers are represented on all Cancer Australia Advisory Groups.

Cancer Australia values the advice and support extended to the organisation by its four Strategic Advisory Groups: the Australian Brain Cancer Mission Strategic Advisory Group, the Intercollegiate Advisory Group, Research and Data Advisory Group, and Leadership Group on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Control.

Australian Brain Cancer Mission Strategic Advisory Group

The Australian Brain Cancer Mission Strategic Advisory Group established in January 2018, provides strategic advice and guidance to Cancer Australia on achieving the Mission’s goal, including: providing guidance on the alignment of key initiatives with the Mission’s objectives; providing advice on emerging issues nationally and internationally to inform the work of the Mission; identifying and advising on collaborative opportunities and approaches to achieving the Mission’s goal; and identifying and advising on leveraging opportunities and investments while ensuring there is no duplication of initiatives, infrastructure or platforms.

The group was chaired by Professor Adele Green AC.

Intercollegiate Advisory Group

The Intercollegiate Advisory Group provides expert advice to Cancer Australia across the spectrum of cancer control to inform national approaches to reduce variations in cancer outcomes; promote the use of best available evidence to achieve effective cancer care; identify collaborative approaches across the system to address cancer challenges; and provide advice on emerging issues nationally and internationally to inform Cancer Australia’s work.

The group was chaired by Associate Professor Chris Milross until January 2020. The group was chaired by Professor Sandra O’Toole for the remainder 2019-20.

Leadership Group on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Control

The Leadership Group on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Control (Leadership Group) provides strategic advice and national cross sector influence to improve cancer outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Leadership Group champions cross-sector collaboration in addressing the priorities in the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cancer Framework; identifies and leverages opportunities to improve cancer outcomes at system, service and community levels; and identifies emerging issues of national importance in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cancer control.

The group was chaired by Professor Jacinta Elston.

Glossary

Term Description

Cancer A term for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control. Cancer cells can invade nearby tissues and spread through the bloodstream and lymphatic system to other parts of the body. There are several main types of cancer. Carcinoma is cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs. Sarcoma is cancer that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels or other connective or supportive tissue. Leukaemia is cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the bloodstream. Lymphoma and multiple myeloma are cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system.

Cancer control All actions undertaken by all stakeholders that aim to reduce the burden of cancer on individuals and the community, such as research; prevention; early detection and screening; treatment; survivorship issues; palliation; education and support for people with cancer and their families; and monitoring cancer outcomes.

Cancer journey An individual’s experience of cancer, from detection and screening, diagnosis and treatment to relapse, recovery and/or palliative care.

Cancer of unknown primary A case in which cancer cells are found in the body, but the place that the cells first started growing (the origin or primary site) cannot be determined.

Clinical trial Research conducted with the patient’s permission, which usually involves a comparison of two or more treatments or diagnostic methods. The aim is to gain better understanding of the underlying disease process and/or methods to treat it. A clinical trial is conducted with rigorous scientific method for determining the effectiveness of a proposed treatment.

Collaborative National Cancer Clinical Trials Groups

Networks of institutions and researchers who conduct studies jointly, use identical protocols and pool their data.

Consumer A term that can refer to people affected by cancer; patients and potential patients; carers; organisations representing cancer consumer interests; members of the public who are targets of cancer promotion programs; and groups affected in a specific way as a result of cancer policy, treatments or services. See also People affected by cancer.

Continuum of care The full spectrum of cancer control services from prevention and early detection efforts, through diagnosis and treatment, to rehabilitation and support services for people living with cancer and/or in palliative care.

Epidemiology The study of the patterns and causes of health and disease in populations and the application of this study to improve health.

Evidence-based Integrating the best available current research in information, resources and decisions relating to diagnosis, patient care and practice.

Gynaecological cancers

Cancers of the female reproductive tract, including cancers of the uterus, ovary, cervix, vagina, vulva, placenta and fallopian tubes.

Term Description

Health outcome A health-related change due to a preventive or clinical intervention or service. The intervention may be single or multiple and the outcome may relate to a person, group or population or be partly or wholly due to the intervention, with either positive or neutral result(s).

Incidence The number of new cases of a disease diagnosed each year.

Lymphoma A cancer of the lymph nodes. Lymphomas are divided into two broad types: Hodgkin’s lymphomas and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas.

Melanoma A cancer of the body’s cells that contain pigment (melanin), primarily affecting the skin.

Morbidity The incidence of disease in a geographical location or specific group of people.

Mortality The death rate or the number of deaths in a certain group of people in a certain period of time. Mortality may be reported for people who have a certain disease; live in one area of the country; or are of a certain sex, age, or ethnic group.

Palliative care An approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing problems associated with a life-threatening illness. Prevention and relief of suffering is provided through early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other physical, psychosocial and spiritual problems.

Pathology The scientific study of the nature, causes and effects of disease, and the diagnosis of disease, through the analysis of tissue, cell and fluid samples. Pathology may also refer to the predicted or actual progression of disease.

People affected by cancer

People who have had a personal experience of cancer, including patients, people living with cancer, cancer survivors, caregivers and family members.

Policy A plan or course of action intended to influence and determine decisions, actions and other matters.

Prevention Action to reduce or eliminate the onset, causes, complications or recurrence of disease or ill health.

Primary care First level of health care, outside of hospitals. For example, a GP is a primary health care practitioner.

Prostate cancer Cancer of the prostate — the male organ that sits next to the urinary bladder and contributes to semen (sperm fluid) production.

Psycho-oncology Concerned with the psychological, social, behavioural and ethical aspects of cancer. This subspecialty addresses the two major psychological dimensions of cancer: the psychological responses of patients to cancer at all stages of the disease and that of their families and caretakers; and the psychological, behavioural and social factors that may influence the disease process.

Psychosexual Concerned with the mental, emotional, and behavioural aspects of sexual development or sexuality, or attitudes relating to sexual activity.

Glossary

Term Description

Psychosocial Concerned with mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being, or issues relating to these states. Psychosocial treatment is intended to address psychological, social and some spiritual needs.

Quality of life An individual’s overall appraisal of their situation and subjective sense of wellbeing. Quality of life encompasses symptoms of disease and side effects of treatment, functional capacity, social interactions and relationships and occupational functioning. Key psychological aspects include subjective distress, satisfaction with treatment, existential issues and the impact of illness and treatment on sexuality and body image.

Radiotherapy or radiation oncology The use of radiation, usually x-rays or gamma rays, to kill tumour cells.

Screening The presumptive identification of unrecognised disease or defects by means of tests, examinations or other procedures.

Staging Conventionally refers to the allocation of categories (0, I, II, III, IV) to groupings of tumours defined by internationally agreed criteria. Frequently these are based on the tumour, the nodes and the metastases. Staging may be based on clinical or pathological features.

Support networks People on whom an individual can rely for the provision of emotional caring and concern and reinforcement of a sense of personal worth and value. Other components of support may include provision of practical or material aid, information, guidance, feedback and validation of the individual’s stressful experiences and coping choices.

Stakeholder Any person or organisation that has a vital interest in Cancer Australia and its operations and programs.

Tumour An abnormal growth of tissue. It may be localised (benign) or invade adjacent tissues (malignant) or distant tissues (metastatic).
