Relevance to General Practice

Cancer is a common disease & a major health problem in Australia today. At current rates, it is expected 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Cancer costs more than $4.5 billion in direct health system costs. GPs have a crucial role in the diagnosis & management of cancer. Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment which assists the body's immune system to fight cancer. Emerging data is relating diet & a healthy gut microbiome to cancer treatments. Important characteristics (of a healthy gut) are a microbiome with high levels of diversity, stability, resistance to stress-related change (antibiotics, infections, immunosuppression) and a high level of redundancy of metabolic pathways. Primary care plays an important role across the cancer continuum: in primary cancer prevention, discussing and delivering cancer screening tests, accurately diagnosing people with cancer when they present in the community, providing supportive care during and after treatment
