Cancer Disparities

Socioeconomic Status Related Cancer Disparities Program (SESRCD) Online Discussion Club

 

SESRCD Online Discussion Club (ODC)

Wednesday, March 20, 2013, 1 pm

Join the SESRCD Program, community-based organizations, and Behavioral and Social Science Volunteers (BSSVs) in an ODC on the National Translation and Dissemination Network (NTDN) to discuss the NPR article, “Cancer Rehab Begins to Bridge a Gap to Reach Patients” by Rachel Gotbaum. SESRCD mini-grantees who provide support to patients are asked to participate. 

 

Join the NTDN online forum here

Questions to Begin the Online Chat Discussion

1. How are patients learning about the STAR program and similar programs in their state?

2. Are their programs for this type of treatment available for low SES patients or any alternatives that can still be effective?

3. What can be done to change the system, so that physicians are recommending rehabilitation therapy along with the cancer treatment that patients are receiving?


Please try logging on to the NTDN at least one day before the chat and contact ajohnson@apa.org if you are not able to. We look forward to chatting with you!
