Education is a priority at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse and to enable our nurses to attend conferences, conduct research and further their education, we set up the Keith Cox Clinical Fund. The Fund supports and nurtures nursing and clinical staff by providing financial support for their education. The fund was established through the philanthropic support of our staff and donor community. Thanks to all our supporters, this fund ultimately allows nurses to provide the best possible care to their patients.

Watch the video below to see how some of our specialist nurses, psych-oncologists and dietitians have benefited from the fund.
