Bloomhill's new nurse-led cancer Survivorship Clinic will provide specialized post-treatment support focused on addressing the side effects and health concerns that remain for many patients after their treatment is completed or for those on long-term maintenance treatment.

Clients will be able to access specialist oncology nurses and allied health professionals as well as attend group activities that will support those people who have completed cancer treatments to develop a healthy life-style, improve quality of life and decrease the risk of cancer re-occurrence.

The clinic aims to enhance the overall quality of life of survivors by addressing psychological well-being and providing support and information to reduce treatment related side effects.

Through the Clinic your nurse can assist with referrals to our multi-disciplinary team which includes a specialist GP who provides an Integrative Oncology Clinic, Psychologists, Exercise Physiologist, Dietitian, Counsellor, Acupuncturist, Massage and Lymphoedema Therapists.

You can also join in a range of group activities to improve mind and body well-being by attending our group activities such as Yoga and Pilates, Gym, Qi Gong, Meditation and a range of Support Groups.

Clinical Services Manager Trish Wilson says, "With cancer survivorship beyond five years now reaching 70% we need to provide services that help people live well beyond their cancer treatment."

Trish also explained, "For many, the challenges of living with fear of recurrence, dealing with the physical complaints related to treatment side-effects, decisions about returning to work and addressing healthy life-style choices are all important aspects of cancer recovery."

Who can attend? Survivorship is a state of mind, rather than a defined stage.  We invite people who see themselves as survivors to visit the clinic.  Most will have completed cancer treatment cancer within the past 3-4 years, or will be receiving maintenance treatment.

The Clinic will be launched in August and will run on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week and a Survivorship Support Group will meet monthly.

For more information or to book a nursing assessment please ask to speak to one of our friendly team by either visiting the Bloomhill Centre in Buderim or phoning during business hours Monday-Friday.
