BreaCan and Ovarian Cancer Australia are proud to have produced the first edition of a factsheet for women living with gynaecological cancer in Victoria. It has been produced as part of a collaborative project between BreaCan and Ovarian Cancer Australia during 2012, funded by the Victorian Department of Health, that looked at information and support needs and preferences for women living with gynaecological cancer.
The content of the factsheet was developed through a consultation process with women living with a gynaecological cancer who identified services and supports that they would have found helpful at the time of their diagnosis or treatment. Many women expressed a preference for having the information in a concise format and being able to access services at a time of their choosing.
The factsheet provides an overview of a comprehensive range of community based supports available in Victoria. The electronic version has active hyperlinks to the various support organisations and services.
The factsheet can be downloaded from our publications page.
