Living with Cancer Education Facilitator Training Program

Ten health professionals from 6 regional health services graduated as Living with Cancer Education Program (LWCEP) facilitators at the end of the two-day program. LWCEP is a free Cancer Council Victoria event which empowers people affected by cancer with useful skills and helpful information. These 10 facilitators, of which five are cancer resources nurses, will join other facilitators to coordinate the LWCEP calendar across the Grampians region. This program presents information about what cancer is and how treatment decisions are made; treatment side effects; cancer services and how to access them; the importance of diet and exercise; coping with loss and grief; and self-care.
