VCCC MONDAY LUNCH LIVE EVENT

A new future for treating fluid on the lung in cancer patients

Malignant pleural effusions are common among cancer patients, particularly those with lung and breast cancers, causing significant symptoms and extended hospital admissions.

Come and hear A/Professor Lou Irving discuss the findings from recent studies highlighting the feasibility, efficacy and safety of a new model of care involving a tunnelled pleural catheter, early discharge and outpatient pleuradesis. Learn about new ways to benefit patients, clinicians and the health care system.
