Service Philosophy

We aim to provide specialised, responsive, sensitive and seamless service that promotes self-management and self-referral. As nurses in Breast Cancer we advocate the promotion of patient independence and continue to mobilise the necessary resources in order to achieve this. By encouraging patients to either participate in their management they become empowered with a sense of control which in turn facilitates the psychological adaptation to their cancer. Alternatively when the need for intervention occurs as some patients are not willing or able to adhere to rigorous management plan their support network can be enhanced to include family, community and hospital support.

Team and patient relationship should be an active, collaborative partnership in the treatment and decision process, which should continue where possible along the disease trajectory.

Patients need control over some decisions and need to be able to make informed decisions regarding their treatment choices or not and still require the support when the treatment options are declined. Our role is ever changing with each individual patient across the continuum. Ultimately we endeavor to provide quality care with the patient's best interest foremost to enhance quality of life.
