Can this program guide me through the daily stresses of a new diagnosis?CaringGuidance™ is a program intended to provide tools to guide women through their questions & concerns in the months after a breast cancer diagnosis.
CaringGuidance™ is accessed privately on a home computer or mobile device to allow you to go through at your own pace.
CaringGuidance™ provides psychologist, oncologist and breast cancer survivor supported advice through videos of survivors and families, text and tools for daily issues such as:
- Talking with people about your new diagnosis
- Receiving and accepting support
- Dealing with unsupportive things people say and do
- Body changes and image
- Moving forward
- Advice to help your family
CaringGuidance™ may also make it easier to talk about personal issues with your oncology care team.
CaringGuidance™ program is part of a research study available to women:
- With their first breast cancer
- Who have had at least one medical oncology appointment at UNMC/Nebraska Medicine
- Have computer or mobile device, e-mail and internet access (some iPads are available)
Use CaringGuidance™ at home, meet with a research team member before and after an appointment, create a report to use during an oncology appointment, and complete several surveys.
