Caregiver Support Video Series

Caregivers are a crucial part of any cancer care team. The goal of this video series is to provide educational support to caregivers as they assist with the everyday needs of cancer patients and provide self-care techniques to improve their quality of life. 

  • Physical Care Training: drain care, lifting, pain management, medication management, symptom/side effect management, and identifying signs of infection.
  • Caregiver Self-Care: nutrition, physical activity, stress management and coping, dealing with fear of recurrence, and deep breathing/meditation.
  • Advocacy: how to effectively communicate your loved one’s needs to the cancer care team.
  • Caregiver Stories: caregivers share their experiences through the ups and downs of their journey.
