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 also be severe and ongoing. Our clinic provides services that can assist with managing the side effects of 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. At our clinic we provide diagnosis, initial care and maintenance programs to ensure optimal management with minimal impact on  daily function.

Maintenance

Learn More
Teaching self-management techniques, developing individually tailored exercise programs, and providing a rage of coping strategies, are all aspects of our maintenance service. We believe in ongoing patient education to ensure best practice standards. Involving family, friends or carers is often encouraged as part of the long-term management plan.
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.
