They are fully qualified specialists in the management of gynaecological cancer.
Staff Specialist: Dr. Greg Robertson
They are gynaecologists, many of whom are from overseas, who are completing sub-specialist training in the treatment of gynaecological cancer at RHW.
They are Doctors training to become specialists
They are Doctors who are doing some general training rotations prior to deciding whether or not to undertake specialist training
No longer is a palliative specialist regarded simply as a Doctor who only treats those patients with an incurable disease. Nowadays it is more common for them to deal with symptoms caused by cancer, such as pain, vomiting and constipation.
If you have significant symptoms you may find that the palliative specialist or their registrar becomes involved in your care from the time of your diagnosis.
Palliative Care Physician: Dr Roseanne Moses.
