Considerations in Cancer Care
Friday, 1 September 2017
Shell Suite, UWI Cavehill, St. Michael
A cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event. Some believe it is a death sentence. There are a lot of decisions to be made regarding type of treatment, managing side effects, minimizing recurrence and palliative care. This event highlights some key considerations in cancer care – the multidisciplinary team, oral issues in the cancer patient, second opinions, surgical options, occupational therapy, physical therapy, dealing with death and more. Cancer can be a burden not only to the patient, but to the medical professional. What about them? What about burn-out and self-care to prevent such?
Join us as we explore these considerations and more at the Considerations in Cancer Care Medical Education event.
Doctors, nurses and allied health professionals are welcomed. CPE credit will be available. Persons with a general interest in cancer care are also welcome to attend.
