Jessica Goldberg, MSN, adult gerontology nurse practitioner, fellow in palliative medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the results of a study where a cancer self-management intervention was created for patients with breast cancer. Goldberg says this multiyear study started out with needs assessment interviews with cancer patients who had breast and ovarian cancer to gather what their self-management needs were. Goldberg and her colleagues created modules based on the feedback from the interviews and other research. Once the modules were created, a focus group of 6 patients was selected to give feedback before using the modules in a series of other studies, Goldberg says. Goldberg says the results showed that the self-management needs of the patient differed depending on their stage. The results showed that stage IV patients used the the care options module the most while the stage I, II, and III patients most frequently used the “managing transition” module. Goldberg says this shows that patients’ needs differ depending on where they are in their trajectory of cancer.

Would you be more active if you knew it could help you to live longer? A recent study found that people who engaged in leisure-time physical activity lowered the risk of premature mortality and increased life expectancy by as much as 4.5 years. Other recent surveys have shown that not only does regular physical activity benefit overall health, improve sleep, help to maintain a healthy weight, manage stress and improve quality of life, it can also have a large impact on reducing risk of long term health conditions and chances of some cancers occurring by as much as 20%, including breast and colon cancer, and helps reduces recurrences during and after treatment. According to Cancer Research UK, around 3,400 cases of cancer in the UK each year could be prevented by keeping active. The more active you are, the better – whether that’s walking, taking the stairs or jogging… brisk walking, cycling and even housework can all count as ways to be active.” Keeping active is easier than you think. Any activity is better than a doing nothing. Start off with low impact activities like walking, cycling and swimming, and build up your fitness over time into a regular pattern of exercise. Regular activity is also a vital part of keeping well before during and after treatment for cancer. Macmillan Cancer Support states that “Physical activity is important for cancer patients at all stages of the cancer care pathway. There is evidence to support the role of physical activity for all stages of the cancer care pathway. We have a wide range of activities available through the Cancer Information Centre at Ipswich Hospital which can be tailored to your individual needs.Please contact us on 01473 715748 if you would like more information.

More at http://umc.org/media. An estimated 1.4 million U.S. children, 8-18 years old, take care of ailing parents, grandparents, and siblings. As a preteen, United Methodist Connie Siskowski cared for her ailing grandfather and that inspired her to create a non-profit to provide support for child caregivers. Based in Boca Raton, Florida, Siskowski is the founder and president of the American Association of Caregiving Youth. "I did some research and discovered this hidden population of children who are taking care of family members. And in doing so they sacrifice their education, their health, their well-being, and their childhood." CNN news network named Siskowski one of their top ten heroes of 2012 in recognition of her group's work. The American Association of Caregiving Youth is the only organization of its kind in the United States. For more information, call 561-391-7401 or 800-725-2512 or visit the website, http://aacy.org.

Patch Adams movie clips: http://j.mp/1uuZQn3 BUY THE MOVIE: http://amzn.to/uhjb7y Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION: When Dr. Prack (Harry Groener) brings the group session to Patch's (Robin Williams) room, Patch mocks the process by including the catatonic Beene. FILM DESCRIPTION: The fact-based story of an unconventional physician who attempted to heal patients with laughter, based on his own book and mixing equal doses of scatological humor and pathos. Robin Williams stars as Hunter Adams, a troubled young man who commits himself to a mental institution in the late 1960s. His experiences there convince Adams to become a doctor, and he enrolls in medical school, where he is appalled at the cold, clinical professionalism that alienates patients from their caregivers. Determined to provide emotional and spiritual relief as well as medicine, Adams clowns around for his patients, getting to know them personally. Although his efforts seem to work wonders and the hospital nursing staff is grateful for the levity Adams provides, his methods alienate his uptight roommate Mitch (Philip Seymour Hoffman) as well as the staff and faculty of his school. Adams perseveres, however, even starting his own low-cost rural clinic called the Gesundheit Institute, and wooing a pretty fellow student, Carin (Monica Potter). Tragedy strikes, and Adams' career is put in jeopardy, forcing him to defend his style and philosophy before a board of jurists determined to bar him from practicing medicine. Patch Adams (1998) was produced by former M*A*S*H (1972-83) star Mike Farrell, who met the real-life Adams when the offbeat doctor served as an advisor to the actor's popular TV series.

From the keynote address at the Wisconsin State Conference on Alzheimer's and Related Diseases, Caregiver Speaker, Author, and Co-founder of CaregiverHelp.com, Elaine K. Sanchez, ElaineKSanchez.com, speaks about the importance of caring for the caregiver. In this segment she talks about sex, dementia, and humor. This is a true story from her book, Letters from Madelyn, Chronicles of a Caregiver. Often stroke survivors, Alzheimer's patients, and people with other dementia-related diseases surprise and upset their families with inappropriate sexual behavior. Madelyn and her family didn't know that Quentin's sexual fantasy was dementia-related behavior. Initially Madelyn was upset with him, but she eventually decided he wasn't "playing with a full deck", and she chose to find the humor in her husband's attraction to another woman. It helps to know that inappropriate sexual behavior by an Alzheimer's patient, a stroke survivor, or anyone suffering with a demential related illness is not a rejection of their loved one. It is a result of damage done to the brain, which often lowers an individual's awareness of acceptable social behavior. Dealing with these situations take a lot of patience, compassion, and understanding on the part of the caregiver. For more on this topic, read "Dad Did What?" an article Elaine wrote for Caregiver Solutions Magazine. Elaine and her husband, Dr. Alex Sanchez developed Caregiver Help, an online support group program that focuses on helping people cope with the emotional stress of caregiving. They also help participants develop their own personalized caregiver survival plan. Elaine K Sanchez is the author of the tender, gritty, and uproariously funny book, "Letters from Madelyn, Chronicles of a Caregiver". Her keynotes and workshops are based on her own experience of caring for family elders, the real-life caregiving experiences of her mother, a Kansas farm wife, who cared for Elaine's dad for six-and-a-half years following his debilitating stroke, and on the journals of Dorothy Tucker, a nurse who worked in nursing homes and on Alzheimer's units for 30 years. Elaine's program "Alzheimer's Survival Training" is approved by the NAB for 3.75 CEU's for nurses and long-term care administrators in most states. It is available online at www:/CEU's-R-EZ.com. Elaine's partial client list includes: Jewish Family and Career Services, Louisville, KY Rock County Council on Aging, Janesville, WI Froedtert and the Wisconsin College of Medicine, The American Parkinson's Disease Association, Wisconsin Chapter, and The Huntington's Disease Society of America, Wisconsin Chapter Catholic Charities, Cincinnati, OH Rural Resources, Pullman Washington LeadingAge Kansas, Wichita, KS Montana Gerontology Society Bozeman, MT National Health Care Corporation, Murfreesboro, TN Inova Health System, Fairfax, VA The Kensington, White Plains, NY Department of Mental Health, State of Mississippi, Alzheimer's Conference, Olive Branch, MS Alzeimer's Associations, Northern California & Northern Nevada; Macon, GA; The Dells, WI; Sioux City, IA; Portland, OR; Long Island, NY Oregon State University Gerontology Conference, Corvallis, OR Parkinson's Resources of Oregon Prestige Care Living, LLC Kansas Area Agencies on Aging Association, Kansas City, Kansas The Co-Founder of CaregiverHelp.com is Elaine's husband, Dr. Alex Sanchez, who recently retired from Oregon State University after teaching a doctoral program in Community College Administration. He earned his Masters in Counseling and his Doctorate in Education from New Mexico State University, and served in a variety of leadership roles in higher education, including 15 years as a community college president in California and New Mexico. He cared for his first wife through her illness with lung cancer, provided financially for his former mother-in-law through the end of her life, and was an active and supportive partner in caring for Elaine's parents through their 10-year end-of-life journey.

http://www.caregiverhelp.com/ Caregiver Speaker Elaine Sanchez, http://www.EKSanchez.com and http://www.caregiverhelp.com/, shares a story from her book, “Letters from Madelyn" to help caregivers understand the process of Preparatory Grief Caregivers go through many stages of grief as they witness the steady decline of a loved one who’s had a stroke or is suffering with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s other types of progressive and degenerative diseases. Elaine K Sanchez, helps caregivers understand that Preparatory Grief requires continual adjustments to ongoing changes, and that this process is quite different from grief after death. This is the second of four videos about understanding and coping with grief on CaregiverHelp.com. It illustrates how difficult it is to stay connected to a loved one as their physical and mental abilities decline. Elaine Sanchez incorporates humor, real life stories and entertaining videos and slides into her keynotes and caregiver workshops. She is co-founder of CaregiverHelp.com, a video-based support program, and writes the caregiver blog, "Caregiver Help Word of the Day".

This video explains the benefits of writing therapy for people dealing with cancer. This video introduces writing exercises designed to unleash the therapeutic process through expressing feelings that were otherwise unable to be expressed. Studies and clinical trials are showing that writing about traumas and difficult experiences results in better outcomes for people dealing with chronic and serious illnesses. Both physical and mental health can be improved. Writing therapy can also be very helpful for caregivers or loved ones who are also dealing with the emotional trauma of cancer.

Presented by: Veronica F. Rempusheski, PhD, RN, FAAN, FGSA Jeanne K. Buxbaum Chair of Nursing Science Coordinator, PhD in Nursing Science Program School of Nursing, College of Health Sciences University of Delaware http://www.udel.edu/chs/facultystaff/rempusheski.html "First Friday" is a monthly brown-bag research seminar and webinar for faculty and students, featuring guest speakers on timely topics of interest. This session features Dr. Veronica Rempusheski's work with older adults. Older adults with cancer and their caregivers may have different information and support needs than younger persons. Dr. Rempusheski's work advances knowledge about community outreach, optimal use of a telephone-based support service by older adults affected by cancer and their family caregivers, and the degree to which a telephone-based service addresses the information needs of these users. The three aims of the research are to (1) expand outreach to older adults affected by cancer and their family caregivers in Delaware, (2) evaluate outreach to older adults affected by cancer and their family caregivers in Delaware, and (3) develop a model to sustain outreach to older adults affected by cancer and their family caregivers in Delaware. Long term research goals include testing the outreach model and replication of the model nationally.

This is the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish In June of nineteen eighty-one, public health officials in the United States reported on the first cases of what came to be known as AIDS. Thirty years later, there is growing progress against the epidemic of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. But today an estimated sixteen and a half million children have lost one or both parents to AIDS. Most of these AIDS orphans live in sub-Saharan Africa. And millions more children live with adults who are sick from AIDS.Lucie Cluver from Oxford University in England has studied AIDS orphans and children living with sick adults in South Africa. She says the mental health of children in these situations can be deeply affected. For example, AIDS-orphaned children have higher levels of depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder than children whose parents have died of other causes.Lucie Cluver wrote about this problem in the journal Nature to mark the thirtieth anniversary of AIDS. She says children have to live with the stigma, the sense of shame connected to AIDS. Many are bullied at school or excluded from the community. At home, children living with a sick adult are more likely to live in poverty and face physical and emotional abuse. Also, Lucie Cluver says the children often become the caregivers. They worry and feel responsible for the health of the sick person. "They're missing school to go and get medication. They're washing the sick person. They're often taking them to the toilet, cleaning their wounds or washing their bedclothes." Close contact with sick adults can sometimes spread tuberculosis or other diseases. And Lucie Cluver's research suggests that psychological problems increase as AIDS orphans get older.Writing in Nature, she called for testing more children for tuberculosis. She also called for giving more parents the drugs needed to keep them healthy longer with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. There are programs to help children, but Lucie Cluver says there is "far more to be done." She says interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy and support groups are "urgently needed" for those orphaned by AIDS or living with sick adults. But the evidence for which interventions are effective "is still thin," she says.For VOA Special English, I'm Alex Villarreal.

Pakistan is one of five countries with the highest projected increase in prevalence of dementia in the Asia Pacific region (Access Economic, 2006). There is a lack of structured support network for caregivers in general and for dementia caregivers in specific. The caregivers and other related individuals predominantly rely on traditional familial support for caregiving. This approach places immense burden on the familial caregivers (Shaji, 2009). In Pakistan, there is paucity of research evidence on care of dementia patients and the need of caregivers dealing with such patients. This study explores awareness among caregivers, their attitude towards family members suffering from dementia and their experience of burden. In-depth interviews were conducted with twelve caregivers of diagnosed patients of dementia in Rawalpindi/ Islamabad, Pakistan. There was a considerable lack of awareness about dementia as an illness among the caregivers. They reported a conflict between the emotional and religious commitment to nurture the elderly relative and their experience of psychological, physical and economic burden, resulting in occasional episodes of carelessness and violence towards them. The study indicated that women, particularly those who were employed outside of the home, reported higher levels of stress. It is suggested that support from extended family in all forms was perceived as a concrete form of stress relief by the primary caregiver. The findings of this study imply that the social and financial burden of dementia on families of caregivers in Pakistan may be exacerbated if they do not have support. This indicates a need for multipronged intervention from the government and non-government organizations as well as the community to develop programs for caregivers which are nested within the cultural context of filial piety in Pakistan. These strategies should also be gender sensitive, giving priority to more at risk groups.

Presented by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. In this emotional tale of Saul Indian Horse, Richard Wagamese tells the realistic story of a man whose life is drastically changed by one of Canada's most painful histories. When Saul was a child he was taken away from his family and forced into an Indian Residential School where he witnessed and experienced unimaginable abuses at the hands of the school's educators. In spite of the harrowing atrocities, it is at the school that Saul discovers his love of hockey, a game that, for a short time, serves as a means of escape. Saul's talent leads to a draft with a minor league team and a spot on Team Canada during the 1972 Canada-Soviet Summit Series. However, as Saul grows into a man, he struggles with racism and alcohol addiction. Saul's tumultuous adulthood eventually leads him back to his roots, where he confronts his past and begins a new journey towards healing. Richard Wagamese is an Ojibway author from the Wabaseemoong First Nation in Northwestern Ontario. He is the author of several fiction and non-fiction works including For Joshua: An Ojibway Father Teaches His Son, Runaway Dreams, and Indian Horse. Wagamese has also been a journalist and, in 1991, became the first Aboriginal Canadian to receive the National Newspaper Award for Column Writing. His most recent novel, Indian Horse, was chosen as the winner of First Nation Communities Read, and is on the Globe and Mail's bestseller's list as well as the Canadian Booksellers Association's bestseller's list. Among his awards, Wagamese's memoir One Native Life was listed as one of The Globe and Mail's 100 Best Books of 2008. In 2010 he accepted an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Thompson Rivers University. Wagamese currently lives just outside of Kamloops, BC with his wife, Debra Powell, and Molly the Story Dog.
