Evaluation of the Federal Government ‘Second’ Funded Breast Care Nurse Initiative (2013)

Evaluation of the Federal Government ‘Second’ Funded Breast Care Nurse Initiative (2013)

The McGrath Foundation engaged HealthConsult to undertake a comprehensive evaluation of the ‘Second’ McGrath Breast Cancer Nurse Initiative. The Federal government renewed funding for the continuation and expansion of the Initiative. The aim of the Second Initiative like the First Initiative is to improve the quality of care reviewed by Australians, experiencing breast cancer, with a particular emphasis on those residing in rural and regional areas. The objective of evaluation is to demonstrate the impact of the Initiative funding from 1 July 2013 to 30th June 2016, including the degree to which the Second Initiative has achieved its aims and met its objectives. The project commenced in July 2013 and is due to be completed in October 2016.
