Rotary Outreach Myeloma Program
An ongoing community service program of the Rotary Club of Camberwell in collaboration with Myeloma Australia
Tackling cancer in regional Australia, one nurse at a time.
"People living with cancer in regional and remote locations need and deserve the same treatment resources and outcomes that are more readily accessible in capital cities."
ROMP in regional Australia
An opportunity for Rotary Service
A core aim of the ROMP initiative is to support the work of Myeloma Australia in regional Australia and facilitate the creation of new myeloma support teams wherever they are needed. We invite regional Rotary Clubs to join us in this work – each in their own region.
We admire and support the vital work of nurses employed in regional cancer treatment centres. We provide the opportunity for them to upskill in the specialised treatment of myeloma and blood cancers through the ROMP Nurses Scholarships.
Myeloma Support Groups
A safe place to meet other members
of the myeloma community"
Myeloma Australia’s Information and Support Groups are informal gatherings for people living with myeloma, their family and friends.
The meetings provide a safe place to meet other members of the myeloma community to share their experiences of living with myeloma, and to learn from various guest speakers from a health management and practical perspective.
All support group meetings are led by professionally qualified Myeloma Australia nurses.
A Multi-Club, Multi-District
The Rotary Club of Camberwell has been engaged with Myeloma Australia since it began more than twenty-five years ago.
The close relationship with Myeloma Australia provides unique insights into the challenges of servicing the myeloma community and a unique opportunity for a shared Rotary venture at a time when Rotary club funds are limited by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.
ROMP is a low cost, decentralised high value Rotary service initiative with significant benefits for regional communities.
