Support for people with Melanoma during Covid-19 Pandemic

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, an expert advisory panel has been established for each cancer type to provide guidance to doctors as well as support for patients during this time. This is a joint initiative of the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre and Monash Partners Comprehensive Cancer Consortium.
