A new model of care for Australia

Published this month in Supportive Care Cancer, we report on the implementation of a nurse led program sending patients at low risk of medical complications from neutropenic fever following chemo, home,  to be managed in an outpatient setting.

Read the full study HERE

Our results show a reduction in median length of hospital stay from 4.0 to 1.1 days and a reduction in admission cost from $8,580 to $2,360 with a net cost benefit of $71,895. Not to mention that there's "No Place Like Home".


NHMRC Early Career Fellows announced

We are pleased to announce that two NCIC Investigators, Dr Ben Teh and Dr Jason trubiano were successful in their NHMRC ECF applications. Ben for his Biomarkers projects, investigating risk predictors of infection in cancer, and Jason for his PIPA project, establishing an allergy de-labelling clinic for cancer patients.

Well done both!
