Advanced Cancer Toolkit
This ‘toolkit’ aims to provide information and support to people who are living with advanced cancer, at any stage from diagnosis on. It can also be useful for family members and friends.
Specialist professionals have created this toolkit, with the help of people living with advanced cancer. We hope it will help you feel more confident in managing your health and wellbeing.
Dip in and out of the resource, as you need it.
The focus of the toolkit is on quality of life – how to live as well as possible.
Topics will cover different areas of health and wellbeing including physical, social, psychological, emotional and spiritual. Each video will have a short introduction to what the content will cover. Some topics have a range of videos. You can choose which ones best meet your needs at this time.
This resource does not contain information on specific conditions and treatments. The Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service can provide you with this information.
A range of video resources are available for you to access.
Different professionals provide information, chosen because of their specialist knowledge on the topics – both from oncology and palliative care worlds.
What do we mean by ‘palliative’ in this toolkit? Is this for you?
By Palliative, we mean a condition that is not curable. People can live with a palliative condition for years, and can still be getting treatment. Palliative care services can help in a variety of ways, at different stages. The aim is to support a person to manage their condition as well as possible to improve quality of life.
