Getting Support

At the Riverina Cancer Care Centre help is always available. We understand a cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment can be an extremely stressful experience. We make available through the support of the Murrumbidgee Local Health District a range of health care support professionals to resolve any problems, provide if required patient advocacy and make sure your experience is the best it can be.

  • Cancer Care Coordinator

    1

    The Cancer Care Coordinator is an experienced Nurse who has an understanding of cancer diagnosis and services available to assist and support you and your family throughout your cancer journey. The Cancer Care Coordinator acts as a patient advocate, coordinating care for people with cancer, providing information, support and referral services. 

  • Oncology Social Work

    People effected by the diagnosis and treatment of cancer often find this to be a trying time. A cancer diagnosis can bring a range of concerns for individuals and families. Would you like support during your cancer journey? A free and confidential service is available for those living with cancer and their families. 

  • Breast Care Nurse

    The Breast Nurse is a specially trained nurse who acts as a patient advocate, coordinating care for women with breast cancer, their families and carers. In doing so they work to ensure physical, psychological and basic support needs are met. We thank the McGrath Foundation for the ongoing support for this vital position. 

  • Dietician

    Qualified Dieticians are available to help support patients during treatment. Many people can follow a normal diet and maintain their usual weight throughout cancer treatment. However, if you’re having symptoms and side effects due to cancer or its treatment, this may make it difficult to eat well. A qualified Dietician can help support you through treatment and learn more about food and nutrition to help manage treatment side effects.

  • Clinical Ethics

    The Riverina Cancer Care Centre helps patients, families and health professionals make difficult decisions about medical treatments and patient care. These decisions may involve moral values, religious beliefs, or professional duties and guidelines. The RCCC also provides education, consultation, research and policy development in clinical ethics.
