The 2013 ABTA "Patient & Family Conference: A Focus on Caregiving
This is a great event. I attended last year and a) learned a lot from the great presentations, b) met a bunch of courageous brain tumor victims, and c) felt like the medical community attending was incredibly supportive.
According to the email I just received, “Experts from around the country will discuss quality of life issues affecting brain tumor patients and their caregivers. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet with ABTA-funded researchers, who will present their findings and discuss current research trends."
Conference topics include:
• The role of patients in research
• Talking with your health care team
• Symptom management
• Nutrition and wellness
• Physical therapy and exercise
• Finances, insurance and advance care planning
