03 May The Triage Cancer Conferences Are For You
Who should attend a Triage Cancer Conference? In short, everyone in the cancer community. We are coming to 3 different communities with a FREE program that has been designed for patients, survivors, caregivers, health care professionals, and advocates. Whichever group you are part of, we will provide you with practical relevant information about navigating cancer survivorship, from the point of diagnosis, throughout life.
Where will we be in 2017?
What topics will we cover?
- Cancer Survivorship: Advocacy & Being Empowered
- Health Insurance: Understanding Your Options, Navigation, Prescription Drugs, and Appeals
- Managing Finances & Accessing Financial Assistance Options
- Taking Time Off Work & Disability Insurance
- Returning to Work After a Cancer Diagnosis
- Be Prepared: Estate Planning and Other Documents
The cost to register
$0. Free. Nothing. And lunch will be provided free, too!
Are you traveling to the Conferences?
If you are a patient or survivor, we are pleased to offer travel assistance to those who would like to attend one of the 2017 Triage Cancer Conferences, but need help covering the cost of traveling to the Conferences. Travel assistance is limited and applications are reviewed as they are received or until funds run out, so we encourage you to apply as soon as possible.
Free Continuing Education Units
For oncology nurses and social workers, we are pleased to offer up to 6 contact hours absolutely free. Our conferences have been approved though ONS and NASW, as well as the West Virginia Board of Social Work. Again, the conferences cost nothing to attend, and offer you up to 6 contact hours free.
Well, listen to what attendees of the 2016 Triage Cancer Conferences thought.
“I wish all patients could have this training.” – Attendee in Nashville
“Very good seminar! Enjoyed attending and hope that I can share these resources with other cancer patients!” – Attendee in Salt Lake City
“I would like to thank you so much for the very pleasant and informative conference. I am a 6 year cancer free survivor and I so wish that I had this information available to me when I was going through my cancer treatment. I came here today to try to get any resources I could pass on to others in order to help them through their cancer in any way I can. Please don’t stop doing what you are doing. You are so appreciated.” – Attendee in Philadelphia
We hope that we’ve made the case that attending a Triage Cancer Conference will be informative, valuable, and worthwhile. And, we really hope to see you there!
