Drawing on results and learnings from its highly successful app, CancerAid has recently developed a new six-week coaching program that empowers members living with cancer to get greater control over their disease. The CancerAid Health Coach Program includes:
- Weekly evidence-based educational modules.
- Self-management tools and techniques.
- A personal coach who regularly checks in to provide help and wellbeing support.
- Motivation to keep cancer patients active and engaged in their own care.
At the start of each week, patients are given an evidence-based educational module that can help them organise their care. The importance of these activities, including symptom tracking and maintaining physical exercise and activity, is explained to patients and they’re given tools within the CancerAid app to manage them. In addition, a personal health coach regularly checks in to ensure patients are engaged by providing support and motivation. With the CancerAid Coach Program, members who are undergoing cancer treatment are active participants engaged in their care.
The CancerAid Coach program represents a combined digital and personalised approach, helping patients to navigate their care and achieve improved health outcomes. The initiative is in line with the latest evidence put forward by integrative oncology and has been developed in partnership with leading cancer support health professionals, marking a significant step forward in the long-pursued industry goal of providing personalised and patient-centric support.
