My Cancer Care Record  

My Cancer Care Record is a resource that supports people affected by cancer to store and record their medical and health-related information in one place.

It also provides tips on questions and information to ask health professionals and a single place to record and recall specific details or instructions that can be hard to remember.

The folder has eight key sections to help you organise your medical information.

This folder is aimed at helping with issues related managing information when you have multiple treatments provided by multiple people, across different services and over long periods of time. It can assist you to be able to communicate across the variety of health care professionals involved in your care.

My Cancer Care Record can also assist help clinicians working with you.  It provides easy access to information they often require such as:

  • copies of your test results and letters from other hospitals/doctors
  • current medication, medical and family history, current treatment schedules
  • details of side effects & symptoms you might have had since your last appointment
  • contact details of other clinicians involved in your care

The development of My Cancer Care Record has been led by a very dedicated consumer group – people with their own personal experience of cancer. Clinical expertise was provided by health care professionals across a variety of cancer health care services, including Cancer Council Victoria.
