Elements of Competence

Need, Intended Audience and Scope of Practice

 

A cancer diagnosis impacts the whole family. Providing care and support, dealing with stress and grief, managing finances and assuming a new role in the family can prove challenging for family members. Every family copes differently, but all families must go through a learning process to define the steps necessary to manage the cancer diagnosis of a loved one. The primary caregiver for the patient is most affected, but other family members experience stress.

 

Patient- and family-centered care is an approach to the planning, delivery and evaluation of health care that is grounded in mutually beneficial partnerships among patients, families and health care practitioners. By truly partnering with patients and families – not only involving them in decisions about their care, but also gaining the benefit of their help and insights to better plan and deliver care – patients can achieve better outcomes, and hospitals can improve the care for all patients and increase staff satisfaction.

 

This activity is designed for individuals who are involved in cancer treatment and education of cancer patients and their families: oncology physicians, primary care physicians, oncology nurses, nurse practitioners, clinical research associates, health educators, social workers, psychologists, chaplains and other interested health care professionals involved in cancer care. Patients, caregivers and community members are also encouraged to attend.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the roles, challenges and psychosocial needs family caregivers of cancer patients across the cancer care trajectory and responsive interventions.
  • Identify how sexuality/intimacy/fertility are impacted by a loved one’s cancer diagnosis
  • Examine the significance of the Sister Study, which was conducted by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.
  • Discuss how employment issues/insurance are affected by a cancer diagnosis and what this means for the entire family.
  • Recognize the significance of caregiver grief.
  • Examine the role of children as caregivers.
