BCNA News 15 Aug 2016
Do you know someone who has a disability and has been affected by breast cancer?
Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) wants to ensure that it provides accessible and appropriate breast cancer information and support to people with disabilities and their families.
BCNA is looking for people to share their experience in a group discussion or interview. We want to talk with:
- People with a disability who have had breast cancer
- Family members, carers or support workers of a person with a disability who has had breast cancer
- Family members or carer of a person with a disability, who have had breast cancer themselves.
BCNA would like to understand what information and support people with a disability who have breast cancer need. We also are interested in the breast cancer information and support needs of people who support people with a disability.
We want to use what we learn from to develop a disability strategy for our organisation. This will help BCNA provide accessible and appropriate breast cancer information and support to people with disabilities, their families and supporters. It will also help BCNA staff to work in a way that is inclusive of people with a disability.
How to get involved
A participant information statement is also available in audio for people with a disability.
