Helping Your Young Breast Cancer Patients Manage Fear & Anxiety
Part One: Helping Your Breast Cancer Patients Manage Fear of Recurrence Tuesday, September 10
Fear of cancer recurrence is one of the most common experiences of someone diagnosed with breast cancer. People diagnosed with breast cancer rate the need for help with managing fear of cancer recurrence second only to managing the physical risks for cancer recurrence. Young breast cancer patients have unique needs and concerns in their fears of recurrence. This program provided by our Young Women's Initiative explains fear of recurrence and helps you work with your patients to build strategies to manage these fears. It also addresses self-care practices for health professionals to manage burnout and compassion fatigue.
