Managing Symptoms of Advanced Cancer – CANCELLED

Date: Wednesday, 02/08/2017
Time: 11.00AM - 12.30PM

Location:  Counterpart Resource Centre

People can experience many different physical symptoms when they have advanced cancer. Some of these can be linked to the cancer itself and some can be side effects from treatment. Common symptoms include pain, nausea, a lack of appetite, breathlessness and tiredness.  It is important to speak up about any symptoms you have and changes you notice, so your health care team can treat or help you manage them.

Dr Shirley Wong will discuss some of the common symptoms of advanced cancer and outline what can be helpful in managing them. Shirley is a Consultant Medical Oncologist at Melbourne Health.

UPDATE 26 July 17: We have had to cancel this session. Our apologies for the inconvenience. If you want more information about this topic please browse our library. You may also wish to call our Resource Centre and speak to a Peer Support Volunteer.
