Solaris Cancer Care is dedicated to the provision and enhancement of quality comprehensive research into integrative healthcare. The Solaris Cancer Care Collaborative Research Team has been established to ensure services supported by the foundation are reinforced by balanced and qualitative evidence.

The Research Team brings together representatives from health care services, accredited complementary therapists, and universities state-wide. Together they share ideas, experiences and expertise drawing on the wide variety of backgrounds, which includes clinical, management and research expertise.

The Solaris Cancer Care Collaborative Research Team aims to:

  • Support the development of research programs addressing integrative oncology, complementary integrated therapies and cancer care for patients and their caregivers
  • Provide a basis for generating evidence-based recommendations for co-ordinated interdisciplinary patient centred care.
  • Advocate the enhancement of service delivery, in metropolitan, regional and remote areas
  • Ensure the dissemination and education of research findings to appropriate health care professionals, academics, cancer care providers and policy makers
  • Establish and maintain local, national and international research connections
