Haematology Nurse Coordinator
Cancer Services, Level 4 Olivia Newton John Cancer & Wellness Centre
Austin Health, Melbourne Australia.
Having come to nursing in his mid 20’s, Peter has a broad experience in haematology and bone marrow transplant nursing. In 1993 he commenced my nursing career within the Haem/Onc/BMT unit at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne before moving up the road to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in 1996. In 1999 Peter became the haematology/BMT Clinical Trials Nurse at Royal Melbourne Hospital, and was involved in co-ordinating a number of studies in myeloma during the exciting introduction of immunomodulators and proteasome inhibitors. This period also included the phase III randomised trial of azacitidine in low blast count AML.
2010 saw an exciting change in direction, taking on the role of Haematology Clinical Nurse Consultant at the Austin Hospital Melbourne. Peter’s unit and it’s trial capacity was rapidly expanding at the time, and consequently he was responsible for co-ordinating our azacitidine patients within ALLG study involvement, as well as those patients managed within PBS indications. The majority of Peter’s time is spent co-ordinating and managing the outpatient and day oncology population across the range of haematology indications.
