Additional resources

There are many evidence-based resources on colorectal cancer available. This list of resources is provided to help direct stakeholders to other resources on colorectal cancer. It is not intended to be a comprehensive list.

Please note that some of these resources have not been produced in Australia and the guidance may not be applicable in the Australian context.

People diagnosed and treated for colorectal cancer have unique supportive care needs based on their individual circumstances. They should discuss this with their health practitioners and ask to be directed to specific consumer-focused resources, including information about dealing with side effects and the emotional impact of cancer.
