Monday Lunch Livestream: Supportive care options for people during the pandemic

Join Cancer Council Victoria as they explore how working in partnership to deliver supportive care services and streamlined referral pathways can improve your practice and deliver better outcomes for patients and carers.

Despite best efforts, supportive care for people affected by cancer has been affected by the pandemic. Thanks to the support of the Victorian Government and public donations, Cancer Council Victoria is increasing capacity to provide cancer support to Victorians affected by cancer and health services alike.

Since the pandemic began, Cancer Council Victoria nurses have responded to more than 25,000 enquiries for help – offering a range of services including psycho-oncology, financial counselling, and peer supports. With their directory of around 500 services across the state, helping people navigate the health system to find the supports they need - from cancer diagnosis, treatment, survival, or end of life.

We invite you to learn more about the services and COVID-19 resources offered, how Cancer Council Victoria work with health services to complement what you do, the tool kits they can provide to you to facilitate referrals and hear more about what they’re working on next.
