Supporting Patients after treatment for Head and Neck Cancer.
As a patient you may become aware of difficulties after treatment has finished, these can include:
Side effects of treatment
Feeling abandoned / isolated
A lack of information
A lack of support
Changes in relationships
Anxiety / Fatigue
The aim of this 4 week course is to encourage and support patients with Head and Neck cancer to manage changes following treatment, as well as to help you become actively involved in looking after your health and well-being.
Taking place in a supportive environment and working with health professionals, we will help you to move forward with your life recognising the “new normal” for you whilst improving your quality of life and well-being.
A family member or friend is welcome to attend the course with you.
There are education sessions built into each week exploring a range of topics to support and inform you following treatment.
Being physically active has multiple benefits.
Inactivity is common with illness and so this course is designed to provide you with opportunities to be active and receive advice from a physiotherapist about exercise .
A questionnaire will be provided at the beginning and end of the course to measure your well-being, your quality of life and your satisfaction with the course.
