For patients, information about cancer can be hard to take in. Our printed resources provide the facts about cancer in simple terms, and are designed to be used within a consultation or given to patients to take away.

Print handouts for patients

Our fact sheets cover a range of topics including alternative cancer therapies; breast, prostate and ovarian cancer; cancer screening and understanding cancer treatments. These concise one-page fact sheets can be printed in colour or black and white.


You can also direct patients to the Cancer Council – 13 11 20 – where they can speak confidentially to a trained cancer nurse for the cost of a local call. They can also provide information about cancer support groups and services.
