About Us

The Australia New Zealand Lung Cancer Nurses Forum (ANZ-LCNF) launched October 2010, is a group of passionate nurses with a common focus of improving patient care, health care delivery and outcomes for lung cancer patients, their families and carers.
This network provides an opportunity for debate, education and knowledge transfer throughout the continuum of treatment.
Established by Lung Foundation Australia and endorsed by the Cancer Nurses Society of Australia (CNSA), this special interest group also encourages nurses who have extensive experience to mentor those nurses who are new to the area.
