Cancer Care Talks
The purpose of Cancer Care Talks is to provide the community of London and surrounding area with information and strategies for living well with and beyond cancer. Cancer Care Talks seminars are 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. These seminars will connect community members impacted by cancer to learn and practice strategies to empower wellness.
Cancer Care Talks is a collaborative effort between the London Regional Cancer Program, the Canadian Cancer Society, Wellspring, and Western University. The program is funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research.
Throughout the 2013 calendar year, Cancer Care Talks will hold seminars that specifically target evidence-based symptom self-management practices:
- The last Wednesday evening of each month from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
- Presentations delivered by expert(s) on the 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. For those unable to attend, seminars are videotaped and made available by clicking here.
