More Treatment? But I'm Sick and Tired of being Sick and Tired!
Dealing with Treatment Burnout
Denise Stahl, Executive Director of UPMC Palliative and Support Institute
In this broad discussion of treatment burnout led by Denise Stahl, Executive Director of UPMC Palliative and Supportive Institute, she discusses how we can deal with the side-effects and symptoms of treatment -- including "chemo brain" -- and how to work with your medical team, caregivers, and family members when these issues arise. Though symptom management is a large part of your treatment focus, Denise will also discuss where to turn to deal with the emotional stress, "financial toxicity" and how to check your "SPIRIT".
While this message is directed to cancer survivors & women in treatment, the lessons learned in this lecture can be applied to all of us.
