What is the Teal Support Program?
The Teal Support Program is a free telehealth outreach program supporting women with ovarian cancer throughout their diagnosis, treatment 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.

The Teal Support Program is the embodiment of Ovarian Cancer Australia’s vision that no woman with ovarian cancer walks alone.
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 are based in Melbourne and will support women across Australia using telehealth. There will be no face to face service. The team has access to a counsellor and social worker to refer to, if needed. The service will be available from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm AEST.
For further information and support about the Teal Support Program, please contact your ovarian cancer nurse on 1300 660 334 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I don’t know where I’d be without OCA. The support and information that I have been given is invaluable. You are just a number in a hospital but at OCA's Teal Support Program you have 1 on 1 with a nurse for as long as you need it.
