The ALLG, with the support of its Consumer Representative Panel, several clinician co-authors and numerous cancer organisations including the Cancer Council of Australia, Cancer Society of New Zealand and Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand, has produced a companion information sheet regarding new clinical guidance on COVID-19 (Medical Journal of Australia, 20 March 2020) for people living with cancer, their families/ whānau and carers.

This companion guide summarises the key points from the publication and provides details where patients and those close to them can access support programs and resources from national and state/territory governments as well as cancer charities.

Please note that the guidance will be updated regularly over the coming weeks and months, and the ALLG will update its supporting materials and notices accordingly.
