Learn about the benefits of having a GP (general practitioner) involved in your care if you are living with advanced/ metastatic cancer. Some of the roles that a GP can play include:

  • knowing you, your family and your medical history
  • helping with the many physical and mental symptoms that can arise throughout your life
  • giving expert advice on preventative health and screening
  • coordinating your care if your condition requires involvement of other health professionals
  • assisting in managing chronic conditions including overseeing Health Management Plans
  • having detailed knowledge of what services are available in your local area.

Presenting this session is Dr Jane Crowe, a GP with a particular interest in cancer and cancer survivorship. She is on the organising committee for the Victorian Cancer Survivorship Conference and is a member of the Cancer and Palliative Care Specific Interest group. Jane also teaches in the Department of General Practice, University of Melbourne on cancer in general practice.
