Supporting members with cancer

The Cancer Support Program is all about improving quality of life for UniHealth members with, or recovering from, cancer.

Tailored to an individual’s needs, the program is designed to support the physical and mental health of members with cancer. This includes members who are having (or recently completed) cancer treatment, and those living with advanced cancer.

The Cancer Support Program is available to eligible UniHealth members* at no additional cost.

How it works

The program is delivered by Teachers Healthcare Services in tandem with specialist cancer services partner, Valion Health.

When we have all relevant referrals and checks in place for you, Valion Health carries out a comprehensive assessment to understand where you’re at.

Their expert team then designs and delivers a personalised program of video call and phone support sessions, plus online education and training.

Support services may include:

  • oncology nurse – develop an individual care plan, education, ongoing monitoring and links to local support services
  • exercise physiologist – work on a personal exercise program designed to increase your strength and endurance, while improving your energy levels
  • oncology-focused dietitian – advice on overcoming problems like decreased appetite and nausea
  • psychologist – cognitive coaching, psychoeducation and support, plus practical tools to assist with managing symptoms and side effects.
  • Valion Health patient app – connecting you to your Valion Health care team, health data & progress tracking and tailored educational resources
  • personalised care pack or group yoga to support your individual care plan.
