Education and Support Programs
The Leukaemia Foundation offers disease-specific and general education programs throughout Australia.
These programs are designed to empower people who have been affected by a blood cancer/disorder with information regarding diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
They also provide an opportunity to hear from specialist doctors and allied health professionals, while meeting people in a similar situation.
The education and support sessions are facilitated by our professional Support Service staff, so you can be sure of a quality learning/support experience.
Many sessions will have a guest 'expert' speaker to ensure you hear the best quality information available in your region, on a range of topics.
Many people find that hearing information this way allows them to learn information, and ask questions, that they dont feel they get the chance to do in a busy clinical setting.
The Foundation also provides support to people online and via telephone support networks.
The Foundation's Telephone Discussion Forums are designed to allow regional people, who may never otherwise meet another person with the same condition, to talk with others, share experiences, and support each other. These forums have proved to be very popular. To learn more, call 1800 620 420.
