As one of the country’s largest private providers, Cabrini continues to be a leader in comprehensive cancer care. The team understands every cancer case is different and requires a coordinated and individualised approach based on personal circumstances. Cabrini also has an experienced and passionate team of breast care nurses who are committed to improving the continuity of care for women.

Alison Murphy and Bronwyn Flanagan are two of Cabrini’s dedicated breast care nurse consultants.

For Alison, “providing up-to-date information and supportive care” is vital to cancer patient care. “Cabrini also provides great allied health support, physiotherapists onsite and our in-house rehabilitation program, the wig room service, great oncology staff, pastoral care support and access to psychological support services,” she said.

Between seeing patients before surgery and chemotherapy and during their treatment, to seeing them in the hospital after surgery, Bronwyn believes that breast care nurse consultants are often “the link between the patient and the hospital or the doctors”.

“I like that we are there to help. The patients are in and out of the hospital quite quickly but we are always here. We give the more supportive side of care to patients. We make sure they have the resources at home to help with their recovery,” she said. “It is a very, very rewarding job and we are very fortunate that Cabrini supports these roles for our patients.”
