VCCC MONDAY LUNCH LIVE EVENT

Community cancer care: sharing the caring

Where are the intersections in prevention, diagnosis, optimal treatment and post-treatment care for patients and where can GPs and hospital clinical and support teams work together to ensure patients travel on a clear journey to positive outcomes?

Dr Mukesh Haikerwal AC has extensive knowledge of general practice in a community setting; medical governance; technology as a healthcare enabler; education; and advocacy to drive systemic change. In this talk he will highlight the potential for GPs and specialists in a hospital setting to collaborate to deliver better outcomes for patients.

Dr Mukesh Haikerwal AC is the principal of a general medical practice in Melbourne’s West. With his wife Dr Karyn Alexander and a local partnership, he helped to establish a multi-disciplinary health hub in Altona North; incorporating CIRQIT Health - Community Innovation Research Quality & Information Technology. The practice has a significant role in supporting patients needing psychiatric and mental health care in the area.

In January this year he was made a Companion (AC) in the General Division of the Order of Australia for “eminent service to medical governance, administration, and technology, and to medicine, through leadership roles with a range of organisations, to education and the not-for-profit sector, and to the community of Western Melbourne.”
