Cancer survivorship research project
Murray PHN has been funded by the Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the gaps in cancer survivorship care and identify ways to improve services across the Campaspe, Loddon and Southern Mallee regions.
The project is working to gather local information in partnership with services including: Kerang District Health Services, Boort District Health Services, Southern Mallee Primary Care Partnership, Swan Hill District Health Services, Bendigo Health Services, Echuca Regional Health and Loddon Mallee Integrated Cancer Services.
