New program to help people Navigate Through Cancer

navigating through cancer

 

To help people Navigate Through Cancer, we're launching an eight-week interactive program for people in Western Australia affected by cancer, including those with concerns about COVID-19.

The weekly, free, one-hour Navigating Through Cancer sessions offer people impacted by cancer, particular those living in regional or remote areas, relevant evidence-based information and the opportunity to ask questions on the day.

Many people need some help and support to adjust to a new way of living when they have been diagnosed with cancer, especially during this challenging time, and particularly those living in regional Western Australia where resources are limited. 

Particularly in light of COVID-19 and the social distancing rules, it is more important than ever to provide people impacted by cancer in regional and remote regions with relevant evidence-based information and professional support.

This series of eight-weekly support and awareness presentations is delivered through the WA Telehealth system straight to your own electronic device or computer and includes topics from the financial impact to living well.

The program will be hosted by expert guest speakers on topics relevant to those impacted by cancer. We urge anyone who would like to know more, or has some questions about cancer and COVID-19, to register online today.

Topics include:

  • Cancer Council WA Support and COVID-19 Q&A 
  • Emotions, Communication and Cancer 
  • Cancer, Its treatments and You
  • The Financial Impact 
  • Will, Legalities and Work Rights 
  • Nutrition and Cancer 
  • Sexuality and Intimacy 
  • Living Well

Sessions will be held every Thursday 11am to 12pm from 30 April 2020 - 18 June 2020
The sessions are FREE but places are limited so registrations are required

Wellbeing after Cancer support

Please note, our Navigating Through Cancer program is designed for people who are currently undergoing cancer treatment or have recently received a diagnosis.

If you are adjusting to life after cancer treatment has finished, our Wellbeing after Cancer is specially designed to support you.

If have concerns around COVID-19 and what this means for you after cancer treatment, please Request a Wellbeing After Cancer callback.

A Registered Nurse who is specialised in the Wellbeing after Cancer program will assist you to identify your specific needs and support you to achieve them through a series of coaching phone calls and useful tools, including developing an individualised wellbeing care plan.
