Update on OM3/4 Programs

 

On 3/Dec/2019, we met with the Divisional Manager - Integrated Cancer Services at Austin Health (including the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre).

OML has been advised that, due to changes in Government policy (and therefore Hospital policy), we will need to partner with a Registered Training Organisation or become a Registered Training Organisation before we can recommence our advanced hospital-based training programs at the ONJ Centre.

We were assured that there is still strong support for providing oncology massage as a complementary therapy for ONJ Centre patients but we were also advised that the funding continues to come from a philanthropic source rather than from the Hospital budget.

This is very disappointing but OML is in conversation with several potential partners.  OML is also still in conversation with the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse in Sydney.  We hope to make some progress on this matter in the first half of 2020.

Stay tuned for further details.
