Wimmera Southern Mallee Cancer Resource Nurse

Wimmera Southern Mallee Cancer Resource Nurse

Cancer Resource Nurses (CRNs) are local health professionals who are trained to offer supportive care to people affected by cancer in their own area. They can refer people with cancer to the right services as close to home as possible and offer support and information. CRNs are now located in most Wimmera Southern Mallee health services.

People travel around the Grampians region and beyond for cancer treatment.  Brochures and a ready-reference map make finding a local Cancer Resource Nurse easier than ever and have been distributed to cancer services throughout the region, to help cancer service staff refer patients from the Wimmera Southern Mallee area back to their local Cancer Resource Nurse. 

The introduction of telehealth via Health Direct, a web based portal, can link CRNs and their patients to Carmel O'Kane, Oncology Nurse Practitioner and/or their Medical Oncologist in the comfort of their own home. This new service aims to reduce the travel burden of regional cancer patients during their ongoing cancer treatment and care.
