PC4 Training Award

About the award

The objective of the award is to promote a greater understanding of the primary care needs of cancer patients and survivors, encourage research in this area and build capacity by encouraging early and mid-career researchers to undertake research in primary care in cancer. The applicant may use this funding to undertake research training, a systematic review or support a pilot study. The award will be offered to an Australian-based clinician or researcher who will undertake a research project in any area related to the primary care and cancer discipline. The successful recipient will submit an abstract to the 2021 PC4 Symposium to present their findings. Award value: up to $5,000. Award length: maximum 12 months*.
