A new web-app to support people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer is now available.
PanSupport is an online hub of advice, resources and information to assist pancreatic patients to live as well as possible. Topics include symptoms and care, accessing support groups, legal and financial advice and looking ahead to end of life care.
University of Melbourne Chair in Cancer Nursing Professor Meiner Krishnsamy, who led the website’s development, said patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer experienced significant symptom burden and poor prognosis.
“PanSupport provides the advice and assistance that people affected by pancreatic cancer need, when they need it, no matter where they are. It is a safe, supportive space, acting as an ‘online companion’ from diagnosis onwards.”
