Economic Impact and Framework for Sustainable Implementation of Paediatric Precision Medicine in the Australian Health System – PPM 5a

Project Overview

This project will leverage the already established ZERO Childhood Cancer flagship program to undertake long term health ecomomic impact, health implemenatation and psychosocial studies for the introduction of precision medicine into the health care system. It will evaluate the benefits of precision medicine whilst also determining the best method to sustainably implement precision medicine into the health care system as a new model of care
