The Clinical Takeaway: Supporting patients with a rare cancer

Description

In this episode:

 

– Rare cancers aren’t that rare when taken as a collective entity and there is much that can be done for these patients
– Rare cancer Australia must be an early point of contact for the patients and GPs
– The cancer navigators can help find necessary information, suggest referral pathways, support resources, help to access clinical trials and even medications and treatments that may be otherwise too expensive
