The Caregiver's Role in Side Effect Management
The Caregiver's Role in Side Effect Management image
AML Caregivers Chapter
event Jul 20, 2022 / 02:00PM - 03:00PM EDT

Event Description

Side effect management often falls upon the caregiver when the patient doesn't feel well and they do not have the strength to care for themselves. It is important for caregivers to feel that they are well equipped with the knowledge they need to assume the role of side effect manager whether that's knowing how to care for the symptoms directly or identifying when its necessary to call the medical team. 

Here to provide some valuable advice on the management of common AML side effects is Dr. Sara Tinsley, who spends plenty of time in her role as a hematology nurse practitioner guiding patients and their caregivers through treatment and recovery. 

Come with your questions and participate in the discussion with fellow caregivers in your AML community!
