A message from Liz,
“I am based in the Cancer Care Centre at Nepean Hospital, however will see patients in all wards, pre-op and post-op. On treatment or off treatment, whatever they need. My role is very supportive care focused ensuring the patient, caregivers and family are all cared for. Counselling, information, education and research are all domains I have to focus on. I would be happy if any of the members had research ideas they wanted to pass onto me.”
