Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Cancer: Thriving and Surviving Online Workshop and Study for Cancer Survivors
Official Title  ICMJE Cancer Survivors Online Self-Management Workshop
Brief Summary Cancer: Surviving and Thriving is a 6-week workshop for cancer survivors. The overall goal of the study is to determine whether an online cancer survivor education and support workshop can have lasting beneficial effects in helping survivors improve their self-management of health skills and quality of life.
Detailed Description

This workshop is aimed at helping you better manage your own health and the demands placed on you because of your cancer diagnosis. It is hoped that the workshop will give you the skills needed to reduce stress and improve your quality of life. If successful, the workshop can be made available to other cancer survivors.

Each workshop is 6 weeks with new lessons each week. You will be asked to log on at your convenience 2-3 times each week for a total of 1-2 hours, to read the lessons, complete assignments, and share your ideas and experiences with your classmates. There are no requirements that participants log in at the same time.

With the moderators and other workshop participants, you will discuss:

  • Healthy eating
  • Managing fatigue
  • Managing stress
  • Starting and maintaining an appropriate physical activity program
  • Getting a good night's sleep
  • Dealing with difficult emotions
  • Solving the problems caused by having had cancer
  • Communicating better with your health care professionals
  • Communicating better with your friends, family and coworkers
