It may be confronting for people with cancer when treatment is no longer working, as well as being an emotional time for the patient and family. Our collection of booklets outlines what can happen emotionally and physically during this time and provides information about practical support and how to access services.
Cancer Council Victoria offers a range of free patient resources to assist when people are going through advanced cancer. These booklets are reviewed by a panel of clinical specialists, nurses, subject experts and consumers, and designed to complement information provided in a clinical setting.
This collection of booklets covers practical issues about how advanced cancer will affect day-to-day life, managing symptoms and getting personal affairs in order. It also provides strategies to help communicate wishes with family and friends and where to get support during this challenging time.
