Teaching self-advocacy skills: The Cancer Survival Toolbox Model Wednesday, June 1, 2011
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET
Credit Hours: 1 CEU(s)
The Cancer Survival Toolbox is an audio-based patient education program developed by social workers and nurses that equips cancer survivors with essential skills to manage their diagnoses and treatment. The webinar will introduce social workers to the Toolbox and the many ways it can be used in everyday practice, including in support-group settings and as a self-advocacy training tool that can be disseminated to survivors and their families. The webinar also will demonstrate the Toolbox Basic Skills series—finding information, communicating, problem solving, decision making, negotiating, and standing up for one's rights—and discuss how the Toolbox model can be applied in social work practice settings beyond oncology. 1 Social Work CE will be provided.
