Supportive Care and Integrative Oncology Specialist

Living with cancer and the side effects of its treatment is often associated with symptoms that can impact on how you feel. A Supportive and Integrative Oncology Specialist can assist in improving one’s quality of life and sense of wellbeing. This includes addressing symptoms including pain, fatigue, weight change, de-conditioning, nausea, loss of appetite, breathlessness, symptoms related to chemotherapy, surgery or radiotherapy, as well as psychosocial, emotional and spiritual concerns.

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.
