Dandenong Hospital has welcomed its first McGrath Foundation breast cancer nurse, offering free support to patients and their families.

Katie Evans will help patients with complete care programs including support groups and emotional resilience workshops.

Katie has worked at Dandenong Hospital as a nurse in the Chemotherapy Day Unit for a number of years but said the role appealed to her because it allowed her to work with patients throughout their entire treatment process.

“Being there from the start and supporting the patient throughout allows for holistic care and I really liked the idea of that,” she said.
