Research demonstrates overwhelmingly that exercise during and following cancer treatment provides many benefits to cancer survivors including, but not limited to:
  • Reduced impact of disease symptoms and treatment-related side-effects, including fatigue and nausea
  • Maintenance or increases in muscle mass, strength, physical function, balance bone density, and loss of fat
  • Improved immune function, cardiovascular fitness, and mood
  • Positive effects on survival
The exercise clinic within Shenton House is operated by Edith Cowan University’s Exercise Medicine Research Institute (ECU EMRI). It doesn’t matter if a patient has never exercised before. After a thorough assessment by a professional exercise physiologist, taking into account the potential side-effects of treatment, an individual exercise prescription is developed which encourages individuals to go at their own pace whilst recognising that some days may be better than others. It’s the one proven thing that cancer survivors can do to help their body recover and stay strong – all within a fun and positive environment where lasting friendships are often made. The program is available to cancer survivors undergoing treatment with GenesisCare, subject to a signed medical consent from their doctor.

The HPS Pharmacy located on Level 2 of Shenton House provides patient medications to GenesisCare’s ‘Grace Unit’ on Level 3. Chemotherapy is prepared on site by highly qualified pharmacists and technicians and delivered fresh to the unit. Patients can also take outpatient prescriptions to the pharmacy to be filled. The pharmacy is staffed by clinical pharmacists who can provide advice about drug interactions, dosages and potential adverse drug reactions. These pharmacists have direct interaction with patients being treated in the Grace Unit, adding another level of service and patient education.

Whether it’s for diagnosis or treatment, patients attending the PCC are treated as individuals by a team of specialist doctors and allied health professionals with complimentary skill sets who really do care. It’s a true multidisciplinary approach.

It’s what makes the PCC different.
