Cancer Care Nurses
The Cancer Care Nurses are part of the Health Independence Program at Latrobe Regional Hospital. These specialist nurses are experienced in managing patients with complex medical and social issues.
They are available to:
- provide education about your cancer, how to recognise problems and what actions to take in certain situations
- provide advice and support with practical, family, emotional and physical issues that arise
- communicate with you and your treating team, including your General Practitioner, and assist with coordinating your care
- monitor your progress for a few months and ensure you have adequate knowledge and support in place for you to best manage your condition and optimise your quality of life.
