Caring for people affected by cancer
Being diagnosed with cancer is traumatic. Going through treatment is often difficult, lengthy and accompanied by side effects. These side effects may be mild and reversible but can be severe and ongoing. We provide services that will assist you with managing the side effects of your cancer treatment.
Caring for people affected by lymphoedema
Lymphoedema is a chronic condition that can affect both women and men. Most commonly, lymphoedema arises as a result of cancer treatment. Patients affected by lymphoedema benefit from early diagnosis, timely management and ongoing monitoring. Our team provides assessment, initial care and maintenance programs to ensure optimal management with minimal impact on daily function.
Our approach to cancer care and lymphoedema management
We ensure a thorough and individualised assessment and work towards patient oriented goals. We take into account patient reported symptoms and utilise a range of objective assessment tools and questionnaires relevant to each practitioner in our clinic.
We advocate a patient centered approach and encourage patients to take an active role in their treatment. We identify individual limitations and choose the right discipline and the appropriate treatment techniques to achieve individual goals and to overcome hurdles.
We pride ourselves in having excellent communication between our staff members to ensure an easy treatment process and a smooth transition between disciplines as required.
To optimise treatment outcomes, we offer regular reviews to monitor patient progress and to modify individual programs accordingly. Some of our services are designed to be continued on an ongoing basis as part of our maintenance program. Our clinic runs regular community events and workshops to educate and empower patients to be an active and informed part of their treatment.
