Bowel Cancer Australia registered nurses provide information and support to anyone with a question or experience related to bowel cancer. This service is typically of most value to people newly diagnosed with bowel cancer and their families, particularly during the first 6 to 12 weeks of treatment.
The nurse advisory service enables patients to clarify information they have been given earlier by their treating doctor and other members of the health team.
