Conference to Focus on Fostering Resilience for Cancer Survivors

Health care providers as well as cancer survivors and their support system/caregivers are invited to a conference titled “Cancer Survivorship: Fostering Resilience for Cancer Survivors” on Wednesday, March 7, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the University of Maryland School of Nursing Auditorium.

The interprofessional, full-day program will focus on preparing cancer survivors for the challenges of completing treatment and for not only bouncing back but also “bouncing forward” after cancer. Participants will learn from physicians, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, physical therapists, and cancer survivors the ways in which survivors, their support systems, and their health care team can build resilience after a diagnosis of cancer throughout their survivorship journey.

After the program, participants will be able to:

  • Facilitate building resilience as a health care provider, cancer survivor, or family member/caregiver.
  • Apply strategies to foster healthy living during cancer survivorship.
  • Apply ethical strategies in caring for cancer survivors.
  • Discuss their role as part of an interprofessional team in caring for cancer survivors.
  • Define compassion fatigue for families during cancer survivorship.

Learn more about topics, speakers, the schedule, continuing education, and registration on the conference’s web page.

This is a collaboration between the School of Nursing and the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center.
