The Stretch Towards Resilience-A Different Look at Leadershi

Contributing factors of professional development for an oncology social worker has been the focus of many articles. However, sustaining connection to the work throughout one's professional trajectory can be tenuous at times which can result in burn out and compassion fatigue. Many studies have focused on the factors that contribute to burnout of clinicians working in oncology that examine why staff burn out while fewer have examined the factors that keep oncology social workers engaged in the field. The focus of this talk will be to look at the mid-career oncology social worker that do not want to leave oncology but are looking at ways to renew their connection to their work and professional development. Cultivation of flexibility is the cornerstone to resilience and subsequently longevity in the field. Case examples include the application of clinical skills in other areas of care and connection to leadership opportunities will be presented.

Working with Lung Cancer Patients and Family Members..

It is commonly understood that lung cancer is often diagnosed at late stages. Patients with lung cancer experience higher distress than the others. Their family members suffer more anxiety and distress than the patients. This webinar will share the essential elements of an integrative mind-body intervention for patients and their family members. The patients and family caregivers are overwhelmed by the diagnosis, treatment side effects and possibly poor prognosis throughout the illness trajectory. Our team adapted Chinese qigong exercises into simple body movement techniques that had been found to be very helpful in enabling patients in regaining a sense of control over their body, thus improving their morale. Spiritual techniques of meaning reconstruction can help cancer patients focus on their priority in life and to seek reconciliation. Self-care techniques are shared with family members so that they become more aware of their own needs. Research on efficacy of these techniques will be shared. It is found that the stress levels of family caregivers significantly reduced and general quality of life of patients improved significantly.
