COVID-19 and Cancer in Victoria: Models of Care

Monday Lunch Live Stream

The current COVID-19 pandemic raises critical clinical questions and challenges for health professionals seeking to continue optimal care for patients with cancer. The VCCC is pleased to partner with the Monash Partners Comprehensive Cancer Consortium (MPCCC) to present our next special COVID-19 edition of Monday Lunch Live stream.

Edition 3: 
Models of Care for patients with cancer during the COVID-19 Pandemic – innovation, adaptation, compassion

What impacts are COVID-19 precautions and safety measures having on how we deliver patient care?  Are there changes and what do these mean for patients and practitioners?

Danielle Spence, Head of Division, Strategy and Support at Cancer Council Victoria, will moderate an interactive forum that will pose the questions that patients want answered. The panel will explore how telehealth and other models of care such as secondary referrals, additional support services and altered treatment regimens are ensuring optimal care while balancing the complexities of health care delivery during a pandemic.

Online audience members will have the opportunity to submit questions.
