About cancer services at Cabrini

At Cabrini we offer coordinated and comprehensive cancer care. Our integrated service ensures that our patients have access to all elements of their treatment in one location.

 

Comprehensive and patient-centred cancer care

As one of the country’s largest private providers, Cabrini continues to be a leader in comprehensive cancer care. Our team understands every cancer case is different and requires a coordinated and individualised approach based on personal circumstances.

At Cabrini, our integrated service ensures you have access to all elements of your treatment in one convenient location. From diagnostics to surgical care, radiology and chemotherapy, immunotherapy, pastoral care, and palliative and supportive care, we offer it all.

Cancer can be a challenging time for everyone involved and we want to make sure you feel supported and well informed. We place our patients at the very centre of our care, recognising your right to actively participate in decisions concerning your treatment and ongoing care.

Cabrini specialists are experts in their field and will be with you every step of the way. They will provide you with guidance and support and engage with your GP and all other health professionals involved in your care.

Fast diagnosis

One of the most important factors to consider with a cancer diagnosis is fast access to experts and services. At Cabrini, we ensure all patients receive prompt treatment. Our specialists aim to triage new patients within days of an urgent referral and within a week of non-urgent referrals.

We provide fast access to all diagnostic services required for the accurate investigation and staging of your cancer, which includes a full range of pathology and medical imaging services all in one location.

Individualised treatment

We believe a coordinated approach to care will provide you with the best outcome. It is proven that a multidisciplinary approach is the most effective way of treating cancer.

For this reason, Cabrini specialists present new cases at regular team meetings where the group reviews all clinical and diagnostic results to develop the best possible individualised treatment plan for each patient. The team includes diagnostic experts, specialist nurses, medical and radiation oncologists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, dietitians, pharmacists, psychologists and researchers.

Benefits of multidisciplinary care

  • Shorter time-frame from diagnosis to treatment
  • Improved coordination of care
  • Improved treatment planning
  • Identification of supportive care needs

Clinical trials and advanced technology

We are also leaders in clinical trials, providing our patients access to the most advanced treatments and therapies available. Our experienced specialists are actively involved with research and regularly attend national and international conferences.

Our commitment to translational research – taking breakthroughs from the laboratory bench to the hospital bedside – means Cabrini patients have access to the most innovative surgical and medical treatment options, and therapies available.
