Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture with Melissa Holt, RN, BSN, OCN. Knowing how to provide support to friends and family members in times of need can be difficult.

Community Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information. Lectures are viewable online via GoToWebinar or by participating in the lecture at one of our designated viewing sites. Please contact us for more information about GoToWebinar registration or to be connected with a site coordinator near you.

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online telehealth lecture with Meredith D. Keisler, PharmD, BCOP, CPP. It is estimated that over 50 percent of cancer patients will experience pain associated with their diagnosis, many of whom will require opioid therapy. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, opioids, prescription and illicit, are the main driver of drug overdose deaths in the US. Between 2014-2015, there was a 14.5% increase in drug overdose death rates in North Carolina. This lecture will discuss management of pain in an oncology setting while considering risk factors for opioid abuse and addiction. RN and Allied Health lectures offer CNE and ASRT continuing education credit (upon approval) for eligible participants. We invite anyone interested to view our lectures. Lectures are viewable online via GoToWebinar or by participating in the lecture at one of our designated viewing sites. Please contact us for more information about GoToWebinar registration or to be connected with a site coordinator near you.

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture. Patients with cancer are increasingly facing high out-of-pocket costs for their cancer treatment. Some even skip their medications or take fewer doses because they can’t afford the payments. Learn about specific steps that can be done to prevent this financial disaster. Community Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information. While these lectures are viewable online, we recommend watching them at one of our Community Lunch and Learn sites. Please contact us for more information and for assistance locating a site near you.
