Respiratory Nurse Campaign
Help establish a FREE Respiratory Nurse Telephone Service
Too many people with lung disease are feeling isolated, anxious and unsupported. Those living outside the main cities are particularly in need of extra support.
Lung Foundation Australia is on a mission to change this by establishing a new Respiratory Nurse Telephone Support Service (available via our freecall number) – but we need your help to make it happen.
About the service
Establishing this service will mean that – for the first time in Australia – patients, relatives, carers and health professionals will have access to free support not matter where they live. A highly qualified Respiratory Nurse will be just a phone call away and ready to provide a range of support including practical suggestions about their lung disease, personal care and management, and referral to local support services where necessary.
