Unicorn Foundation employs first NET Nurse to run support services

The Unicorn Foundation has launched their first NET Cancer Nurse Specialist telephone and internet support for Australian (& New Zealand) patients.

Given the large geographical impediments for patients outside large metropolitan centres to get to our support groups, it was decided that the most effective way to service the needs of all NET patients was to have a ‘hotline’ staffed by an experienced NET nurse.

The response to this program has had overwhelming support from our patients and has improved the journey with NETs for many. Please take a look at our first in a series of Patient Videos that show the affect that support from a patient group has on a NET patients journey.
