Clinicians and Researchers from The Prince Charles Hospital (TPCH) and the University of Queensland (UQ) have developed whole lung lavage, a ground-breaking new treatment that provides hope to those suffering with artificial stone silicosis.
A first-of-its-kind pharmaceutical program launched across Metro North Hospital and Health Service this month will allow greater access to medications for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients visiting its facilities.
The blood transfusion service at Kilcoy Hospital started out small, but thanks to RN Maggie's determination to streamline the process for patients, it's now bigger and better than ever!
