Advocacy Training

The Cancer Council, in partnership with Cancer Voices NSW, convenes two-day advocacy training workshops four times per year. The workshop has been designed to assist people with cancer and their families/carers to become effective consumer advocates for improved health policies and systems.

The aims of the workshop are :
  • To provide participants with the skills and knowledge required to become active and effective advocates for improvements to cancer policies and systems
  • To provide the skills and knowledge to effectively represent the interests of cancer consumers in a range of forums
  • To empower cancer consumers to fully participate at all levels where cancer decisions are made
  • To enhance participants' understanding of how to influence Government, the health delivery system, clinicians, research institutions, cancer organisations and support providers.
