Counselling and Support

At CARE we understand the importance of patient education, support and counseling both pre-operatively and post operatively.

Information regarding specific clinical problems and treatment will be discussed in consultation with the Specialist as well as ongoing support and education provided by our Practice Nurse. Our practice nurse will provide you with information about anatomy and physiology, the disease process, treatment options along with pre and post op expectations.

Once you have decided to proceed with surgery our practice nurse will provide you with information pertaining to specific pre-operative requirements, hospital availability and commence the booking details.

All information obtained throughout your consultation with a specialist and/or our practice nurse will be presented to you in an informal private presentation the content of which will be provided to you in pamphlet form for you to take away for discussion with family and friends.
