ANZ Lung Cancer Nurses Forum
Lung Foundation Australia is committed to advocating for the appointment of more specialist lung cancer nurses in hospitals around the country. Anecdotally, we know that lung cancer patients and their families receive better access to the right treatment at the right time if they are allocated a specialist lung cancer nurse working within a multidisciplinary team.
The Australia and New Zealand Lung Cancer Nurses Forum (ANZ-LCNF) is a special interest group established by Lung Foundation Australia in October 2010 and is endorsed by the Cancer Nurses Society of Australia (CNSA).
The ANZLCNF’s common focus is to improve patient care, health care delivery and outcomes for lung cancer patients, their families and carers. This network provides an opportunity for debate, education, research and knowledge transfer throughout the continuum of treatment. This group will also encourage nurses who have extensive experience to mentor those nurses who are new to the area lung cancer care.
