Chemotherapy Senior Staff Nurse at Bristol Haematology & Oncology Centre and Treatment Support Nurse, Penny Brohn UK
Susie qualified as a Registered General nurse at St.Thomas’ Hospital London in 1992 and gained a BSc Hons. Degree in cancer & Palliative Care Nursing at the Royal Marsden Hospital in 1996. She has over 25 years experience as a Chemotherapy Senior staff Nurse in a conventional hospital setting but something was missing in that environment. The question asked by patients ‘ What can I do to help myself?’ was often left unanswered. Six years ago, she joined the team at Penny Brohn UK, co-ordinating a Treatment Support Clinic for patients undergoing active treatment. The Integrative model that they use at Penny Brohn UK has helped equip Susie with the skills & knowledge to empower patients, providing them with the tools to help themselves. She now combines her time between working as a Chemotherapy Senior Staff Nurse at Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre and Penny Brohn UK where she continues to learn about the integrative approach to cancer care.
Susie Budd is speaking at 13:30.
