Sarcoma Awareness Month webinar series: survivorship and life after sarcoma treatment

Australia and New Zealand Sarcoma Association (ANZSA) is partnering with the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre in July to present a special series of four webinars for Sarcoma Awareness Month.

Life after sarcoma treatment is a crucial area to address. While sarcoma treatment can have a debilitating effect on patients physically, many patients are also affected mentally, emotionally, socially and financially.

This webinar session will provide a better understanding of common survivorship issues, ways to cope and stay well, and provide an update on the many resources available to help patients recovering from sarcoma to manage their health and wellbeing post-treatment.

Please join Professor Michael Jefford, Director of Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre and sarcoma survivor Amy Lantieri who will help patients gain a better understanding of common survivorship issues, ways to cope and stay well, resources available that help manage health and wellbeing post-treatment.

The presentation will cover topics including:

  • Sarcoma survivorship care and plan
  • Post sarcoma effects on employment, studies, family and social life
  • Common survivorship issues
  • How to keep track of progress and wellbeing
  • What to do if you need help
  • Available resources and tools for self management

ANZSA is keen to encourage patients know their rights, to speak up and take action if they need to or want to. This session is designed to support and enable patients to direct their own care after treatment.

Communications and Project Manager, ANZSA
