• Care in Transition

    A program for caregivers of children completing cancer treatment

    The end of treatment is a welcome occasion for many families, but it can also be a time of new questions and concerns. This 2-hour program offers parents an opportunity to hear from health professionals and other parents about common off-treatment concerns and practical ways to address them.

    Next Session: Saturday May 13, 2017
    10:00 AM to 12 PM
    Dana-Farber Cancer Institute,
    Smith Building 308/309

    Program Description: The first hour includes brief educational presentations on psychosocial and medical concerns after treatment, as well as a presentation by a parent about their own experience managing the off-treatment transition. The second hour provides time for questions and small group discussion.

    Program Leaders:
    Eileen Duffey-Lind MSN, Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
    Christopher J. Recklitis PhD, Clinical Psychologist

    Who should attend?: Care in Transition is open to caregivers whose children will complete treatment within four months, or who have been off-treatment treatment 2 years or less. We expect to offer the program 2-3 times a year, and welcome caregivers to attend one or more sessions.
