Striking the Balance Part Four: Support and Psychosocial Services

Find out how this lady came back from the dead using “almost magical” part of the electromagnetic spectrum! 

Eminent leaders and thinkers in the cancer community came together in early June 2010 at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting, or ASCO, for a first-of-its-kind roundtable event. The session, sponsored by Amgen and its Breakaway from Cancer® initiative, was designed to highlight potential areas for improvement throughout the spectrum of cancer care, and inspire action by establishing several mandates for change for the cancer community and health policymakers.

The roundtable event featured leaders from each of the four Breakaway from Cancer nonprofit organizations, distinguished community and academic oncologists Drs. Lee Schwartzberg and John Marshall, and special guest speaker Patrick Dempsey, actor and founder of the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing. The event was moderated by Susan Dentzer, Editor-in-Chief of Health Affairs and contributor to PBS NewsHour.

This podcast, the fourth and last segment in the Breakaway from Cancer® Striking the Balance roundtable discussion series, focuses on the dialogue surrounding patient support and survivorship. Caring for the whole patient and delivering quality care includes tackling the cancer as well as ensuring the patient’s emotional wellness, because cancer’s toll can go beyond the physical impact.
