Many cancer patients experience memory and attention problems during and after their cancer treatment. These changes can be mild or more severe, but regardless, they are disturbing to the patient and their loved ones.
This online class is for care partners, family members, and others who are looking to understand what is happening with their loved one and how they can help. The class will explain what cancer-related cognitive impairment is, what can be done about it and how to help.
This class is not intended for patients/survivors, but for their loved ones. Patients/survivors who want to learn more about this topic should sign up for the Chemo Brain Workshop: Improving Memory and Concentration.
