Statement

4 August 2016

We understand, with all the media regarding chemotherapy, that patients may be concerned about their treatment with us at Lifehouse.

We can reassure patients that we have strong checks and balances in place to ensure patients are receiving the right chemotherapy treatment.

We use evidence-based practice and we have regular peer review of our treatment procedures to ensure we are delivering the best possible treatment to all our patients.

Should patients remain concerned, please speak to your Medical Oncologist or email us on info.chemo@lh.org.au so we can best address your concerns.

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse strives to deliver the best cancer care, as a not-for-profit, independent comprehensive cancer centre specialising in state of-the-art advanced cancer care, and rare and complex cases.

Using the latest technology in a modern, purpose-built cancer hospital, our highly experienced clinicians treat more than 40,000 public and private patients every year – concentrating all their efforts, learning, research and expertise into cancer care alone.

We use a multidisciplinary approach to treatment where teams comprising surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, allied health professionals and researchers provide peer-reviewed, tailored, individualised treatment to patients.

Lifehouse is also New South Wales’ and one of Australia’s biggest cancer clinical trials centres, with more than 140 research projects and clinical trials giving our patients access to the world’s newest cancer breakthroughs.

International research has confirmed this specialised, cancer-only approach at comprehensive cancer centres in the United States and Europe, has resulted in outcomes that are 5 to 15 per cent better for patients after five years.
