I think this is great news. Daniel Moore of Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) has advised the locations for an additional 14 Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses across Australia as part of PCFA’s Prostate Cancer Specialist Nursing Service.  

The new recruits will join the 29 existing specialist nurses who are currently working in hospitals across the country, bringing the total to 43. These nurses provide vital information, care and support for patients and their families, within a multidisciplinary team, and improved access to specialists and services. They also provide coordination of care from diagnosis onwards.
