Prostate Cancer Specialist Nursing Service

The Prostate Cancer Specialist Nursing Service is an existing program delivered by Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) and established through generous initial funding from The Movember Foundation. The Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses are currently placed in hospitals in all States and Territories across Metropolitan and Regional Australia. PCFA have now received additional Commonwealth Government funding to enable expansion of this service. The funding enables placement of additional nurses in both hospitals and community settings. These nurses will be employed directly by the host health providers, and will be professionally supported by PCFA.
