Background

Lymphoma Care Nurses are located around the country to provide awareness, advocacy, support and education to all who are affected by lymphoma or chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) across Australia. We offer this support for patients, their loved ones and health care professionals who care for them.

We recognise that lymphoma is often complicated to understand as there are over 80 different subtypes, that all have different characteristics, treatment and management. There have recently been many new, exciting improvements in the management of lymphoma/CLL and many new treatments have been made available to Australians who have been diagnosed with this disease.

It is not only challenging for patients and their families who may not have ever heard of lymphoma, but it can also be challenging for healthcare professionals caring for lymphoma patients. There is so much to know and some subtypes of lymphoma are very rare. It is therefore important to keep up to date with the latest information on lymphoma or CLL, to know where to find reliable and current information and access to resources to both educate your patients, but also to keep you informed. Lymphoma Care nurses are here to help support you with this challenge.
