Evaluating the value, role and responsibilities of the metastatic breast care nurse

Project: Research

Project Details


The proposed study will be the first to investigate the value, role and responsibilities of the MBC nurse from the perspective of: (1) women diagnosed with MBC; (2) the families of women diagnosed with MBC; and (3) the MBC nurses themselves, with particular focus on collecting data that will be used to inform the roll out by the McGrath Foundation of 26 government-funded MBC nurses over the next 3 years, to refine the McGrath Foundation’s recently launched model-of-care for MBC patients, and to provide evidence for the continued financial support for dedicated MBC nurses by the Federal Government.
