The Cancer Society’s Editorial Process
We acknowledge all the clinicians and experts who have contributed and reviewed our cancer information on the inside back cover of each booklet, which can be seen in the PDFs of the booklets and in the relevant pages on this website. An Editorial Team of Cancer Information Registered Nurses writes our cancer information booklets and sheets. A staff of qualified Health Promoters and Health Professionals write and review our information sheets and resources on reducing the risks of cancer, e.g. information on how to be SunSmart and information about Tobacco and Quit Smoking resources.
The Cancer Society’s Medical Director, Dr Christopher Jackson, checks and signs off the cancer information in the Society’s cancer information booklets and cancer information sheets along with the Editorial Team (Julie Holt, Kate Velenski, Rebekah Irwin and Hypatia Stacy-Baynes (editor)).
