CNNT on DVD
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.
