What is pancreatic cancer?
Pancreatic cancer is cancer that is found in the pancreas, an organ responsible for aiding digestion and producing important hormones such as insulin.
I have six years experience as a clinical nurse specialist in surgical oncology, a Masters Degree in Acute Care Nursing and Graduate Certificate in Cancer Nursing. I am passionate about providing support, care and information to patients with pancreatic cancer and work closely with the multidisciplinary team. As a member of the Cancer Nursing Society of Australia and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network I am actively involved in quality improvement projects and pancreatic cancer service planning.
