Professor Sabe Sabesan

Professor Sabe Sabesan, BMBS, FRACP, PhD is the Clinical Dean of the Northern Clinical Training Network-Townsville and the Director of the Department of Medical Oncology at the Townsville Cancer Centre, Townsville Hospital, Queensland.

He developed and established the Townsville teleoncology network (TTN) and the Tropical Centre for Telehealth Practice and Research in North Queensland to decrease the disparity in access to specialist care faced by rural and remote Australians. Under the TTN and the telehealth centre, he has conceptualised, developed and implemented various telesupervision models for medical training. These include the remote supervision model for rural chemotherapy administration (the Queensland Remote Chemotherapy Supervision model-QReCS, for Queensland Health in collaboration with CIRCS), and shared care models with general practitioners for cancer care closer to home. Published results of the evaluation of various aspects of these models have led to further improvement.

As current chair of the regional and rural group of COSA, Sabe led the development of the COSA teleoncology guidelines and is facilitating the development of the ANZ Teletrial model.
