Since opening in 2013, we have made remarkable progress in improving outcomes for people with cancer. We are living proof of the truth that Professor Chris O’Brien AO knew: that patients treated in a comprehensive cancer centre have a better chance of beating the disease.
This is borne out in the Reporting for Better Cancer Outcomes (RBCO) report from Cancer Institute NSW. The report shows a significant increase in survival by patients treated at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, in some cases up to five times.
Dedicated support for rural and regional clinics
A generous philanthropic gift provided the funding for a coordinator to our new head and neck rural clinics.
Funding specialist nurses
It was a generous individual gift that funded the role of specialist pain nurse, Leona.
