Cancer care coordination
At Icon a dedicated cancer care coordinator will support you and your loved ones from when you receive your diagnosis, through your treatment and beyond.
Your coordinator is an experienced oncology nurse who will guide you through your individual care pathway. They are a caring familiar face who will support your clinical treatment, your emotional and psychosocial needs, and provide reinforcement and clarification of information to assist through your decision-making process. This comprehensive, coordinated service means you will feel supported every step of the way.
Your cancer care coordinator is part of your multidisciplinary team and assists in the planning and coordination of your clinical care. Icon delivers integrated cancer care and can refer you to additional trusted allied health providers and support services should these be required, such as:
- Community support services
- Exercise physiologist
- Occupational therapist
- Social worker
- Speech pathologist
To make an appointment with an Icon cancer care coordinator, please speak to our friendly administration team at your local centre. A doctor’s referral is not required to access cancer care coordination services and referrals can be made by patients, carers or healthcare professionals.
