Multi-Disciplinary Care Team meetings

This is an integrated team approach to health care in which medical and allied health care professionals consider all relevant treatment and care options and develop, collaboratively, an individual treatment plan for each cancer patient presented to the meetings.

 

Supportive Care Screening

This provides us with an opportunity to identify the kinds of support and information which may be the most helpful for you and your family throughout the cancer journey.

Staff in the GCCC will ask you to complete this form at times throughout your treatment.

Group programs

Cancer Care Nurses, chemotherapy and radiotherapy staff coordinate a number of group programs for patients and family members. You can expect to learn more about cancer and its treatment in a supportive group environment.

Having an open discussion and some sharing of experiences will help to understand you are not alone on your journey and improve understanding of your changed circumstances.

For people who have a diagnosis of cancer, their family and friends. It's a chance to learn more about cancer, its treatment and your emotional reactions to it.
