Health Care Professionals


The Prostate Cancer Specialist Nursing Service funds the placement of Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses in a variety of Australian health care contexts in partnership with health service providers.

The Prostate Cancer Specialist Nursing Service has been made possible thanks to the generous funding of the Movember Foundation and Federal government funding and will be delivered through PCFA.
