Cancer Education Programs

Small group education programs can help at any stage of your cancer experience and are available at local health services across Victoria. Join these informal and friendly sessions to share stories and tips with others going through a similar experience.

The Living with Cancer Education Program helps you get through the day to day challenges including getting the most out of your health care team, managing stress and dealing with side effects.

Wellness and Life after Cancer is to help you move from treatment to recovery and self-manage your health and wellbeing.

Expression of interest: Community Panel

When someone that you know is facing a serious illness, it is important to understand what support, care and choices they want and what they value. This helps them to prepare for end-of-life care. More than this, it can also help their families or friends to carry on with their everyday life.

Most Australians would prefer to die at home surrounded by their family and friends. However only a small number of people do so. The Community Panel is being asked, what does dying well look like and how can we help people achieve this?

The Community Panel will meet on 3 separate days in November/December. If interested register by Sunday 28 October at www.deliberatelyengaging.com.au/dyingwell
