Providing Chaplaincy to Oncology Patients & Their Families – NACC 2023 Webinar series
Many improvements have been made in the Oncology/Hematology field. The word ‘cancer’ still remains a frightening and daunting word and the diagnosis carries a lot of implications for the person as well as their family/caregivers. The pattern of their life is not necessarily linear; there are many ups and downs. There is a process going on inside the person that they cannot control. And for them, cancer becomes a lifelong journey- from the time of diagnosis. Religious coping can be helpful along their journey.
