Illness can be perceived as an opportunity for learning, discovering, and growing – especially during and in the aftermath of treatments. Yet for cancer patients in particular, the question often arises as to “what to do next” when they are released from the rigors of treatment regimes. The pressure to embrace this “new lease of life” and do all they can to stay well goes hand in hand with the need for on-going medical monitoring which can leave patients overwhelmed by fear or feeling powerless with regard to their own health.
This lecture will examine some of the tools that one can implement to maintain healing and importantly to manage fears in the aftermath of cancer.
This talk is suitable for all patients who have or have had a diagnosis of cancer.
