Tipping the Scales Toward Health
Working effectively with cancer patients and their family members often means empowering them to make the best possible decisions for themselves. One way to do this is by asking them reflective or thought-provoking, open-ended questions to help them sift through issues. Another is to provide them with information, whether on cutting-edge cancer treatment and technology or prevention/treatment support from integrative therapies they may not have, such as mind/body medicine, nutrition and naturopathy.
Cutting-edge cancer treatment can make the difference between life and death or length and quality of life for a cancer patient. New technologies and treatments are being developed all the time, and this information, which you can read and pass along, could be life-saving or life-changing.
