Coping With Cancer — Our First Live Webcast Event

– Finding the Calm Beneath the Chaos –

March 18th, 2015 at 1:00 – 1:30pm ET

 

Participate in our conversation with Sheila Shuster as we explore what happens to patients and caregivers as they are thrown into the tumultuous world of cancer. The healthcare community seems hyper-focused on medical treatment, while undervaluing the impact that strong emotional health and calm, nurturing support can have in the healing process.

  • What does the patient really face when he or she suddenly feels forced to relinquish control of their lives?
  • How can caregivers prevent being blindsided and reduce the chances of burnout?
  • What can patients and caregivers do to help each other to clear a path for healing?
