“Cancer Survivorship: Fostering Resilience for Cancer Survivors” is an interprofessional, full-day conference focused on preparing cancer survivors for the challenges of completing treatment and for not only bouncing back but also “bouncing forward” after cancer.
The conference will be held March 7, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the University of Maryland School of Nursing Auditorium.
Participants will learn from physicians, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, physical therapists, and cancer survivors 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 participating in this program, you will be able to:
- Facilitate building resilience within your patients, their family, and caregivers.
- Apply strategies to foster healthy living during cancer survivorship.
- Apply ethical strategies in caring for cancer survivors.
- Discuss your role as part of an interprofessional team in caring for cancer survivors.
- Describe compassion fatigue for families during cancer survivorship.
