Presented by Sara Goldberger, LCSW‑R
Whether you are a caregiver for a loved one with cancer, a health care professional, or an individual diagnosed with cancer who cares for others in the cancer community, this webinar will provide practical tips on how you can care for yourself while caring for others, and manage feelings of exhaustion, burn out, and compassion fatigue.

Social workers and nurses in attendance will walk away with a better understanding of how to care for caregivers. This webinar will explore the different caregiver roles, learn how to care for yourself while caring for others, as well as ways to deal with compassion fatigue or burnout. This webinar will provide social workers, nurses, and other types of health care professionals with a foundation to help patients and caregivers manage the psychosocial aspects of caregiving. All attendees will have the opportunity to ask the speakers questions in real time via a chat-box.
