Cancer Care Talks: Empower Your Wellness
Cancer Care Talks began in early 2013 as a vehicle to engage the community and provide information and strategies for living well with, and beyond, cancer. The program is a collaborative effort between the London Regional Cancer Program, the Canadian Cancer Society, Wellspring, and Western University, and is funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research.
Each Cancer Care Talk is led by experts who provide evidence-based information and strategies for the self-management of symptoms related to cancer, such as fatigue, pain, and insomnia. The number of Canadians living with cancer continues to increase, and it is important that survivors and caregivers learn to live well with the consequences of cancer and its treatments. Cancer Care Talks connect community members who have been impacted by cancer and provide a forum to learn and practice strategies to empower wellness.
Throughout the 2013 calendar year, Cancer Care Talks will hold a series of nine seminars that specifically target symptom self-management practices.
- Cancer Care Talks are held the last Wednesday evening of each month from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
- Presentations are delivered by expert(s) on each topic, with time for discussion and questions from the audience.
- Accessible community locations with free parking.
- Information and worksheets will be provided at each seminar to supplement the information discussed during the session.
