The Human Side of Cancer
with Dr. Jimmie Holland
A series of podcasts about coping with the psychological and emotional side of cancer,
with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center psychiatrist Jimmie Holland,
the woman who pioneered the field of psycho-oncology.
You can hear more of my podcasts for cancer survivors here.
and the Surviving + Thriving series here.
A variety of resources and coping strategies can help a patient deal with the
anxiety and disorientation that often accompany a cancer diagnosis.
Cancer patients are often flooded with unreliable information about the disease.
What's cancer fact and what's cancer fiction?
Find the right doctor for you or your loved one and then build
a successful partnership to ensure the best cancer care.
Family members and caregivers suffer, too, when a loved one has cancer.
Good communication and support services can help.
After successful treatment, a survivorship plan can help patients feel less anxious
about monitoring their health and more confident about embracing the future.
