Lecturer: Feisal Umar FBSCH

From diagnosis to treatment to recovery, the physical and psychological effects and symptoms of cancer are widely documented and may bring on a range of emotions. These include but not limited to, the following:

  • Anticipatory nausea
  • Anxiety / frustration
  • Depression
  • Distress
  • Fatigue
  • Fear / uncertainty
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Grief / sadness
  • Guilt
  • Pain
  • Shock/disbelief
  • Vulnerability / helplessness

Emotional and psychological support can help patients learn to cope with distress. Such support can reduce levels of the symptoms that they may be experiencing, as well as treatment-related symptoms among patients. Approaches can include the following:

  • Training in relaxation
  • Meditation
  • Stress management

Some expert organisations recommend that all cancer patients be screened for distress early in the course of treatment. Therapists can use a variety of screening tools, such as a distress scale or questionnaire, to gauge whether cancer patients need help managing their emotions. Patients who show moderate to severe distress are typically referred to appropriate resources, such as a clinical psychologist, psychiatrist or a social worker.

With the development in the field of Psychoneuroimmunology and the accepted connection between Mind and Body, we are able to offer you this one day CPD event, on completion of which you will be able to:

  • Address the patient's anxiety and depression
  • Provide appropriate support for carers
  • Teach the patient to control their symptoms, e.g. pain, fatigue and nausea
  • Understand the physical and psychological aspects of cancer
  • Work with a patient's fear of dying
