I am an oncology social worker of eighteen years. Oncology treatments, as well as the insurance and legislation issues that drive access to care, are constantly changing. Triage Cancer’s resources have been invaluable for my continuing education. I have also found their patient education materials to clearly explain what patients and families need to know in managing cancer treatment and survivorship care.
"I love the practical information I get from Triage Cancer. "
What Cancer and Careers and Triage Cancer brought to the forefront was the importance of clinicians and support staff understanding the patient as a whole, including their financial needs and concerns, career concerns that are compounded by a diagnosis of cancer, and legal concerns that frankly would rarely be on an oncology provider’s radar screen. Your presentations during this wonderful seminar you provided to us was a wealth of new information, resources and tools that can be incorporated into the treatment decision making. We are now more aware of these potential issues that directly impact our patients during treatment as well as into long term survivorship.
This [in-service training] was so valuable to the oncology professionals (Nurses and Social Workers) in our area. The information and the way the information was provided by Triage Cancer and Cancer and Careers made it easy to learn and understand. There are so many nuances to employment and obtaining employment for those that have experienced cancer. The insights into how to navigate job interviews and the issue of whether to disclose or not disclose cancer experience was extremely helpful as it is an area of education for professionals that is seldom found locally. So many professionals stopped on their way out of the conference to express their appreciation for this opportunity. Can’t recommend it enough!
Triage Cancer has done their research! One of the most challenging parts of cancer survivorship is access to information and resources about the topics that are relevant to survivors no matter where they are in their survivorship. Triage Cancer provides a diversity of topics and speakers that will engage any and all cancer survivorship audiences (and the professionals who care for them). From the practical issues of managing finances and insurance to the emotional and spiritual well-being after cancer, Triage Cancer provides a dynamic and interactive format for survivors to learn how to better navigate their cancer survivorship. Ultimately, leaving with tools and resources to feel more empowers in their survivorship.
I have worked with, and have relied upon, Monica Bryant of Triage Cancer many times to provide current and essential information to our participants and their families, who are dealing with the impact of a cancer diagnosis, and I have never been disappointed. Her presentations consistently contain up-to-date facts and readily useful recommendations. There are so many issues that need to be addressed when a person is diagnosed with cancer…medical, psychological, legal, financial, etc. Triage Cancer is uniquely positioned to address these issues and to help those impacted by cancer find the resources they need.
