Cancer nurses join BCNA Helpline
Breast Cancer Network Australia’s Helpline has boosted its team employing a number of staff with a background in nursing.
The qualified Helpline team can take calls about treatment side effects, preparing for and recovering from surgery, the emotional impact and other issues related to a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Staff can also provide referrals to other support services.
The Helpline is also available to friends and family of people diagnosed with breast cancer and members of the community seeking information on how best to support a person with breast cancer.
The phone number for the BCNA Helpline is 1800 500 258. Our Helpline is open 9 am to 6 pm on Monday to Thursday and until 5.00 pm on a Friday. Calls to the Helpline are free of charge when made from a landline and charged at standard rates when made from a mobile phone.
