All of which is aimed at making patients at Canterbury DHB a little more comfortable.

Improving Access To Information

Auckland District Health Board will use Dry July 2015 donations towards development of a range of cancer pathway-specific information including pamphlets, posters and online materials to empower cancer patients. Consumers will be involved in the development of these materials which will also be translated into different languages to increase understanding of and access to services.

Although a good deal of information is already available for patients, it is primarily in very clinical language. The aim of this project is to speak to cancer patients in layman’s terms and inform them of important options available to them during their treatment.

Transport Services for Cancer Patients

The Cancer Society of New Zealand will use funds raised by Dry July 2015 towards the provision of patient transport services by CSNZ divisions across the country.

Quiet Room for Waitemata Patients

Waitemata DHB is using funds from Dry July to create a private, quiet space where patients and their family/whanau can go for a conversation often about receiving bad news related to a cancer diagnosis.

The DHB has received feedback that often a cancer diagnosis is made in four bedded rooms where there is a lack of privacy due not having dedicated spaces in the hospital for these types of conversations. The quiet room will offer a space for this. It will be appropriately furnished and be family focussed. It will be housed in a part of the hospital dedicated to relieving suffering and where spiritual support is available if needed. Patients will have the option to stay in the room with their family/whanau as necessary.

Local Artwork for Northland DHB’s Cancer Centre

Northland DHB is using Dry July donations to purchase art work for their new cancer centre waiting area, as feedback from patients/whanau has been that the building is too clinical and has no colour to brighten it up. NDHB is working with the KohuKohu Village Arts Trust to engage local artists to submit art work in regards to cancer experiences/journeys.
