Caring for the Caregiver Cancer Survival Toolbox® Special Topics
Caring for the Caregiver was developed specifically to provide resources and support for cancer caregivers to help them address the issues they face on an ongoing basis.
As a caregiver, it is easy to be overwhelmed by caring for a cancer survivor. An important point to remember is that you, as a caregiver, are also a survivor because you, too, are surviving the challenges, responsibilities, and life-changing effects of this disease and its treatment. Throughout this program, you will hear stories taken from real life and solutions that can provide you with the hope and options you need, while showing you ways to balance your own personal needs with those of the person you are caring for.
After listening to this Toolbox program, you will be better prepared to:
Strengthen your skills and abilities while finding and using new resources
Do a much better job of nurturing everyone involved—including yourself
The Ellen L. Stovall Award for Innovation in Patient-Centered Cancer Care is a unique opportunity for patients and survivors to recognize pioneers who are transforming the cancer care system.
The NCCS Cancer Policy & Advocacy Team (CPAT) is a program for survivors and caregivers to learn about pressing policy issues that affect quality cancer care in order to be engaged as advocates in public policy around the needs of cancer survivors.
