Fatigue is a very common problem for people with cancer. It can leave you feeling very tired and exhausted all or most of the time. There are things you can do to help manage your fatigue, for example, by changing the way you plan and fill your day.
This workshop programme aims to help you understand what causes fatigue, how it affects you and to recognize your own triggers. At the workshop you will also be able to find out about other support available and learn from each other.
Who is the programme for?
Any adult experiencing mild to moderate cancer-related fatigue can apply. This is a group programme for approximately 15 people. A family member or a friend can accompany you.
Who runs the group?
The workshops are led by a team of Northern Trust Health & Social Care professionals including occupational therapists, physiotherapists, dietitians, social workers and the Macmillan Information and Support Manager. Each workshop will have different professionals leading the session.
We aim to make the workshops informal, practical and enjoyable. A variety of activities such as presentations, discussions, video clips, relaxation techniques and exercise sessions are used.
Tea/coffee will be served at each workshop.
