Lymphoma Care Nurse
Our Lymphoma Care Nurses are here to help you from diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
Everyone's lymphoma and CLL experience is different.
Our lymphoma care nurses will be there to help patients and their families navigate the system, access the most up to date treatments and take the fear of the unknown out of the cancer journey. This support is available for free.
The key roles of a lymphoma nurse will include the following;
A major role will be the provision of support and education to newly diagnosed lymphoma patients and their families – this includes emotional support, access to support groups and websites, helping with appointments, explaining treatment regimes including clinical trials, interaction with social work and allied health, addressing fertility issues and implementing survivorship programs.
- Development of education initiatives such as simple summaries of treatment regimes, which can be provided to patients Australia wide. With over 60 different types of lymphoma, each having unique treatment, which may vary with the age of the patient, stage of the disease and whether the treatment is frontline or for a relapse, there a huge number of regimes out there.
- Ensuring timely access to clinical trials for all lymphoma patients.
