WCMICS Grants Program 

Professional Development Stream

The principal aim of the WCMICS Grants Program Professional Development Stream is to provide funds that enable health service staff to gain knowledge and skills that will improve cancer patient outcomes and/or experiences. 

Applications for grants are open to allied health and nursing staff employed at any WCMICS health service for two distinct categories of professional development: Conference attendance & Specialised training.

Our Work

Virtual nurse Joanne - now delivering radiotherapy patient education

Patients often struggle to retain the amount of new information received in education sessions which can lead to poor retention, repetitive questions and limited engagement in their care. We have developed short, animated videos for patients during education sessions. The videos complement existing education practices, providing consistent bite-size information.

Fertility After Cancer

Know your options for having children in the future


WCMICS is proud to launch the Fertility After Cancer campaign to raise awareness about fertility preservation options available to patients following a cancer diagnosis.

Cancer, and cancer treatment, can affect fertility or the ability for survivors to have children. There are several safe and effective fertility preservation (or oncofertility) options.
