Session Description: This workshop will offer an introductory overview of psychosocial oncology including the effect cancer has on essential areas of the human cycle of life. By recognizing and validating the impact of demoralization of oncology patients and their families, we can better understand the course of disease throughout the medical, emotional, psychological, and social foundations. This workshop will provide clinicians with pertinent information to help them better serve clients impacted by cancer.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to:

  • Identify the basic psychological needs of cancer patients across the disease trajectory
  • Discuss the impact of cancer on the major domains in the life cycle
  • Explain the impact of demoralization within the cancer patient and their family
