Patient and Caregiver Resources:
Cancer has a huge impact on not only patients, but also their friends, families, and other caregivers. The focus of this group is to compile resources in a way that is easily accessible to patients and their loved ones and can make a cancer diagnosis a little less overwhelming for everyone. A few examples of resource categories include caregiver support, palliative care, and communication.
Finances play a huge role in any health condition, but especially cancer. There are many legal and logistical issues that can be very confusing, all on top of going through a cancer diagnosis. The goal of this group is to put together digestible resources that can guide patients through the financial aspects of cancer.
BVOGUE – Black Voices on Gynecologic Cancer: Understanding Experiences:
This workgroup has emerged into a research project that looks at racial disparities in gynecologic cancer, specifically focused on Black patients. The beginning stage is to create and conduct focus groups with Black patients to hear their stories. The qualitative data from the focus groups will then be used to create educational materials for healthcare workers, in order to combat the disparities that still exist in our world today.
