Allied Health

At Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, our Allied Health practitioners work with doctors and nurses to support treatment of cancer patients, protecting, restoring and maintaining optimal physical, sensory, psychological, cognitive, social and cultural function.

Allied Health practitioners are highly skilled medical professionals with national organisations and codes of ethics, with recognised educational pathways and qualifications, but who are not doctors and nurses.

Lifehouse Allied Health services include:

Post blood and marrow transplant

Post blood and marrow transplant (BMT), a combination of physical changes, medication, bed rest and sleep problems can lead to a sense of fatigue, loss of strength and reduced quality of life.

To help manage such issues the ‘Living Well BMT Rehabilitation Program’ is now being offered at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse. The program will run four times per year for eight sessions over eight weeks, with before and after assessments to track your progress.
