Education & information

The emotional aspect of cancer is often overlooked. In the same way that you will be supported through the physical aspects of cancer, our team of counsellors and cancer nurse counsellors arehere to support you through the emotional impact of cancer.

From one-to-one counselling, to support groups, we offer a range of support that will help you manage the many emotions and thoughts that will come with a diagnosis.

Eating well during and after your treatment can be a huge challenge for both patients and their loved ones. Research has shown that eating well can improve your general health as well as your health while dealing with cancer.

 

Some patients might already be eating healthily, but for others this might be a time when they want to take more interest and care in their diet. There is an overwhelming amount of information on diet and cancer often with conflicting advice. At Cork ARC Cancer Support House we provide practical information on diet in cancer, taking it in small steps to support those who may be struggling with nausea, a sore mouth or other
digestive struggles from treatment. We run workshops on Diet and Nutrition, which are facilitated by a registered dietitian. All of the information you will receive is based on solid, authentic research. Our aim is to keep this as simple as possible for you.

 

At Cork ARC Cancer Support House, we provide workshops for the continued education of healthcare professionals in the area of oncology.

Oncology Workshops

 

Healthcare professionals working in the area of oncology can avail of our supports in Cork ARC Cancer Support House. We host dedicated workshops for those working in the area of oncology such as Irish Association of Nurses and Oncology Information Evenings, GP Information Evenings Palliative Care Nurse and Public Health Nurse Information Evenings.

 

Cancer Specific Supports

Each cancer diagnosis has its own specific set of symptoms, treatment and common, or unique, set of side effects. Our aim is to help you to understand your diagnosis and treatment and how to manage life during treatment and while you recover. We can support you by listening to your experience with a one-to-one appointment, provide you with information and share tips that can help you find out more about your cancer.

 

We also bring together people who have had a similar cancer.

These include:

  • Breast Group.
  • Get Active After Cancer – a programme for men after
    prostate or bowel cancer (click here to learn more).
  • Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Programme for those living with advanced cancer.

We tailor these groups to cover cancer specific information and some common experiences that you may encounter. Groups provide an opportunity for patients to connect and share their experiences and ways of coping. The shared experience by a fellow patient is the most valued part of these groups.
The group will give you techniques and skills on managing your cancer, encouraging exercise and a healthy lifestyle, along with managing anxiety and relationships.

Our message is simple: you are not alone.
