The Optimal Care Pathways (OCPs) aim to improve the outcomes and quality of life for patients with blood cancer.

The Optimal Care Pathways are a framework that provides high-quality care and includes every step of a patient’s journey, including prevention, early detection, recovery, and end-of-life care.       

The OCPs are designed to provide support at different stages to help improve communication and care that’s tailored to a patient’s personal experience.

These new OCPs join the existing eight blood cancer OCPs, including six that were led and developed by ALLG and the Haematology Society of Australia and New Zealand (HSANZ) in 2022 and two that were developed by the Cancer Council in 2021. Each OCP was developed by Australia’s leading blood cancer treatment and care experts, including ALLG clinicians and researchers.

The development of the OCPs involved extensive consultation to ensure each produced the very best standards in care and has been approved and endorsed by the Federal, State and Territory health departments. You can find the new Optimal Care Pathways below, and along with all of the OCPs at the Cancer Council website.
