Anam Cara (Day Oncology) Cancer Care Workshop for regional health professionals

The Anam Cara Workshop presented a well-rounded education program delivered by a regional multidisciplinary team of nursing, allied health and medical oncology clinicians. Twenty-nine participants received information about febrile neutropenia, central venous access devices (CVADs), new cancer treatments, cancer education opportunities, cancer rehabilitation and supporting people with palliative care. A work station to encourage CVAD practical and troubleshooting skills was well received. Networking, peer support, self-care and relaxation participation complemented the program.
