November 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Event - Living Well Series - Managing the symptoms of upper GI cancer

Pancare proudly presents the second webinar in our Living Well Series, ‘Managing the side effects of upper GI cancer’. The Living Well Series is an informative, online series which seeks to enhance the daily health and wellbeing of patients and their carers, living with an upper GI cancer.

Clinical Oncology Nurse Facilitator Kristy-Lee Jones and Shannon Gleeson Pancreatic & Upper GI Cancer Specialist Nurse, will present an in-depth session for those recently diagnosed with an upper GI cancer and their carers, providing an opportunity to learn more about the symptoms of diagnosis, complications and side effects of treatment and ways to manage these.

This informative session will cover the following:

  • Overview of common symptoms upon diagnosis and reasons why these occur
  • Exploring treatment options – the importance of planning
  • Practical ways to manage the side effects of treatment
  • Coping with your diagnosis and the supports available to you and your family 

The session will also allow plenty of time to have your questions answered.

We anticipate that this will be a popular session. Please ensure you don’t miss out by securing your spot today. Don’t worry if you can’t make it on the day, make sure you register and you will be able to review a recording of the event at a time that suits you.
