    a) geographic and other disparities in access to diagnostic imaging equipment
    b) arrangements for commonwealth subsidy of diagnostic imaging equipment and services
    c) out-of-pocket costs for services that are not subsidised by the commonwealth and the impact of these on patients, and

2. Optimal care pathway for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with cancer.

3. Accreditation Review Draft Report. 

Work of this type comes in throughout the year and the feedback provided by ASMIRT goes into the mix to improve services to the public and enables members to work to the full extent of their scope of practice.
