Thames chemotherapy nurses lead the way

The Thames Chemotherapy nurse team have all recently completed the Chemotherapy Certification through the online learning platform of eviQ, which is an Australian web-based resource for cancer education and treatment. It provides current evidence based cancer treatment protocols, chemotherapy treatment protocols and information on patient assessment and management of toxicities.

The Thames chemotherapy nurse team is the first in the Midland health region to be 100% eviQ certificated.

Charge nurse manager Sandra King says: “We are very proud of their efforts. Their knowledge base will greatly enhance the patient care and the service our Chemotherapy Clinic provides.”
