Prostate care nurse supports IABT
Prostate cancer care nurse Jo Hiscock is one of only five working in Queensland, making our region very lucky.
“I’m told continuously by the men that they don’t know how the men did it before, without the support,” Mrs Hiscock says.
“We have everything here in Toowoomba. There’s no reason to go out of Toowoomba for any of their treatments, bar one,” she says.
The role Mrs Hiscock finds herself in is a fulfilling one, helping men and their carers.
“I don’t think we should ever forget that these men have people in their lives as well, and often their carers are alone,” she says.
Mrs Hiscock also provides support and education for other nursing staff, coordinates men’s care programs and helps negotiate the healthcare system in their journey.
