This research project represents a partnership between Notre Dame and the School of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Western Australia (UWA) and the WA Cancer and Palliative Care Network at the WA Department of Health.
The research collaboration constitutes a nurse-led multidisciplinary survivorship clinic for patients with haematological cancers.
The project aims to provide evidence-based information tailored for these patients.
The development of a survivorship care plan and the delivery self-management education tools by a nurse-led multidisciplinary team is believed to lead to long-term improvements in health outcomes of cancer survivors.
