Prostate Cancer Specialist Nursing Service
The Prostate Cancer Specialist Nursing Service is a 3 year funded program to test a number of Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses in a variety of Australian health care contexts in partnership with health service providers.
The program was officially launched on the 3rd of May, 2012 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. Nurses employed as part of this program met for their initial training and then returned to their hospitals to continue their great work.
PCFA is proud to announce that the following hospitals will be hosting Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses as part of our pilot program:
- Austin Health, VIC
- Bendigo Hospital, VIC
- Canberra Hospital, ACT
- Darwin Hospital, NT
- Hollywood Private Hospital, WA
- Latrobe Regional Hospital, VIC
- Launceston General Hospital, TAS
- Mater Adults Hospital, QLD
- Royal Adelaide Hospital , SA
- Royal Hobart Hospital, TAS
- Tamworth Hospital, NSW
- Townsville Hospital, QLD
The Movember Foundation has generously provided $3.6 million of funding for the first part of the program. Additional funds are still needed and PCFA is now calling on the Australian community and corporate Australia to provide support so the program can grow and secure more nurses across Australia.
