West Moreton Health’s McGrath Breast Care Nurse Karen Miles said, if adopted, the research
would be ground-breaking.
“What we want to do is expand on the existing after-surgery consultations, which focus on physical
assessment and symptom management, to provide a comprehensive assessment of patient’s
psychosocial health and quality of life,” Ms Miles said.
The Hospital Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer, James Sturges said the local research project
aimed to deliver local outcomes for local people using local researchers.
“This will make a meaningful difference to the people of West Moreton.
“I hope individuals, groups and businesses in West Moreton will help us achieve this by supporting
the cause by purchasing a scoop, or few, making a donation, buying our fundraising merchandise
online, and joining us to Go Pink on Friday, October 23.”
“It is about local fundraising to support local research to help local people through local services,”
Mr Sturges said.

West Moreton Health chief executive Dr Kerrie Freeman said it was hoped the research project would pave the way for a six-month pilot, using West Moreton Health’s existing successful telehealth platform.
“We don’t know of this model of care happening anywhere else right now, so this wouldn’t just be a first for West Moreton,” Dr Freeman said.
“This is another example of great innovation and research leadership by West Moreton people to advance person-centred care.’’
The pilot would be developed for anyone who has completed surgery and is going to have other treatment such as radiotherapy or hormonal therapy.
