Clinical/acute care

We are calling on clinicians and consumers to help us develop guidance on non-urgent, elective surgery that will better inform patient choices.

Some non-urgent elective procedures only offer benefits to patients under very specific circumstances.

In February 2021, we released Best Care guidance on 26 elective surgeries, providing evidence-based information on elective procedures and potential alternatives. View the list

We are adding more procedures to that list and the Best Care Advisory Group have selected the postoperative radiotherapy after radical prostatectomy.

We are now looking for clinicians and consumers to help us produce guidance for this procedure, including identification of indications for this procedure and alternative pathways of care.

Join our Best Care Expert Working Group 

We are inviting expressions of interest from:

  • clinicians from specialist surgical/medical, nursing, allied health and primary care backgrounds
  • consumers (patients or carers) with lived experience of prostate cancer who have received radiotherapy in a Victorian public hospital.

How to apply

Applications close 11:59 pm Sunday 5 December 2021.
