Bridging the gaps in the patient journey

Grampians Health was delighted to welcome a new dedicated Bowel Care Nurse at Ballarat Base Hospital and St John of God Hospital Ballarat to support bowel cancer patients across the region and assist them in their treatment journey.

Providing care coordination, while identifying and bridging gaps in the patient journey, which has the potential to change outcomes within the region.

“During their treatment, local patients often meet with several different teams along the way, and navigating the information and appointments can be overwhelming at times. Having a centralised point of contact to provide clarity and reassurance has been warmly welcomed here at the service,” said Jaymee, specialist Bowel Care Nurse.

The funding for the Grampians region's dedicated Bowel Care Nurse position was made possible through Bowel Cancer Australia with the generous support of the Dry July Foundation.
