The CNNT Workshop, "Creating Cancer Care Teams" is now available on DVD. The DVD can be used by existing Cancer Support Groups in any Texas community.

The DVD comes with a Facilitator’s Guide to help the Program Coordinator at each location present the DVD to a group. A master set of PowerPoint presentations and handouts are included in the facilitators guide.

The workshop topics addressed:

  • Information for patients including nutrition and exercise during and after cancer treatment, symptom management as well as emotional issues
  • Information for the caregiver
  • Transition planning
  • Finding good resources on the internet and in the community

The patient and caregiver topics are presented by Dr. Billy U. Philips, Jr., a professor of Preventive Medicine and Community Health at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock. Dr. Philips has been a caregiver and knows the personal difficulties experienced by people battling cancer, including the need for nutritional support, firsthand. His expertise is in cancer prevention and control and he is a well-published author on the subject.
