New Benefit Makes Tough Times Easier

Cancer support gets a thumbs up from participants.

PSA CPSU NSW members now have access to cancer support programs through the union’s relationship with Osara Health. These programs ensure PSA CPSU NSW members affected by cancer are provided with the right support, confidence, and empowerment to tackle the road ahead.

Early feedback from participants is positive.

The PSA CPSU NSW members who completed the Osara Health Coach and Caregiver programs reported being 90 per cent satisfied with the program, indicating they would be highly likely to recommend the service to other members. Additionally, 87 per cent reported feeling notably more empowered and confident after finishing the program. Members rated the support they received as a result of Osara Health as 4.75 out of 5. Members felt more in control of their cancer experience, rating it 4 out of 5.

Members who went through the program have also been praising the union for this offering, rating the association’s support during a diagnosis as 4.4 out of 5.

Osara Health offers the Cancer Coach and Cancer Caregivers program, which is a six-12-week program designed for those impacted by cancer. Enrolment is free and available to all PSA CPSU NSW members now. Enrolment is easy: simply provide a few details to Osara.

“A cancer diagnosis can be one of life’s greatest challenges,” said Member Services Manager Kym Ward. “If members are impacted, support is there.”
