Breast Care Nurse Update – November 2010

McGrath Breast Care Nurses at the Breast Care Nurse Practicum

The Breast Care Nurse Practicum, which brings together breast care nurses from rural and regional Australia, was recently held at the Westmead Breast Cancer Institute in NSW.

Run three times a year in collaboration with the McGrath Foundation and the College of Nursing, the Breast Care Nurse Practicum is designed to provide support to breast care nurses working in rural and regional Australia and equip them with additional clinical experience and knowledge about breast cancer. We’re proud to say five of our McGrath Breast Care Nurses have attended the practicum during 2010.
