Dr Rachel Cameron, BSc (Hons1) (Pathology), PhD (Medicine)
Dr Rachel spent a long time studying what causes disease, or pathology at university. This took nearly 10 years at the University of Sydney and Stanford University in the USA. Since then she has spent the last 20 years working to develop new treatments including drugs, how to best deliver them, and how they can be improved.
In one of her roles, she worked in the Medical Communication and Information team, for a large international drug company that specialised in making cutting edge cancer treatments, including targeted therapies. In her role she provided information on how a range of drugs, including cancer, worked as well as their expected side-effects. This information was given to doctors, pharmacists, nurses, patients and their families via the telephone and in writing for 5 years.
Dr Rachel setup a new wing of a mental health recovery hospital within an existing rehabilitation facility. She has taught at Sydney, Melbourne, and Monash universities and at the Southern School of Natural Therapies.
Dr Rachel has taught doctors, nurses, scientists, her staff and the public on a range of health-related topics and treatments, including many of the most complex new cancer treatments. Dr Rachel has delivered over 500 seminars to the public on the topic of ‘Healthy Sleep’.
She has worked as a Life, Leadership, Career and Executive Coach, which all have a different focus depending on client’s individual needs.
Dr Rachel has worked with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), as a planner for participants and their families.
During her cousin’s battle with brain cancer she arranged access to an experimental medicine for his tumour, through her knowledge, networks and understanding of the process known as ‘Compassionate Access’. This knowledge helped to get the medicine from the drug company for free, saving her family over $30,000 AUD. Dr Rachel also understands the clinical trial process for new medicines and can facilitate entry if appropriate.
Today she is more interested in reversing cancer progression rather than what caused it and implementing more pro-active approaches. She is a strong and passionate advocate for preventive medical approaches, which she will also discuss with you especially if you decide to work together on an ongoing basis. She has walked in your shoes, alongside friends, family and others, cancer is not something anyone should experience, but if you are, you are.
When you are ready, willing and able to make a change in your circumstances we are here to help you focus on the positives and make substantive changes to your health.
In summary Dr Rachel finds making understanding health topics and helping people like you very rewarding, especially when you are very vulnerable and in need of support.
