Teal Support Nurse Program

Teal Support Nurse Program

If you are living with ovarian cancer and would like access to your own ovarian cancer nurse, then the Teal Support Program is for you.

What is the Teal Support Program?

The Teal Support Program is a free telehealth outreach program supporting women with ovarian cancer throughout their diagnosistreatment and beyond. The main aim of the program is to provide continuity of care when you are not regularly seeing your treating team and focus on areas of care where there are unmet needs.

Teal Support Program Brochure

This support brochure outlines the services offered by Ovarian Cancer Australia's Teal Support Program.

The Teal Support Program is the embodiment of Ovarian Cancer Australia’s vision that no woman with ovarian cancer walks alone.

If you are a health professional, please visit this page for more information about this program.

How does it work?

Your ovarian cancer nurse will work closely with your specialised health services and link back to your treating medical team. The free program will become an extension of your treating medical team. We feel confident the program will prevent you from feeling isolated and unsupported. The ovarian cancer nurses will be able to relay information to your medical team and gain guidance for you about the best way to support and treat you.

Who are the Teal Support Program team?

The team are employed by OCA. They are all trained oncology/ gynaecological nurses with years of experience caring for women with ovarian cancer. The nurses will support women across Australia using telehealth. There will be no face to face service. The team has access to a counsellor and psychologist to refer to, if needed. The service will be available from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm AEST.

How do I join the program?

For further information about the program, or to speak with an ovarian cancer nurse, please phone the helpline on 1300 660 334 (Monday-Friday during business hours AET) or email care@ovariancancer.net.au
