It is known that acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients endure many physical challenges from their disease, treatment and side effects, but cancer can have a significant effect on emotional health too. How can patients cope with the complex set of emotions that accompany an AML diagnosis? How does emotional distress influence quality of life?
On January 25, 2019 at 2:00 PM Eastern Time (11:00 AM Pacific; 1:00 PM Central), a dynamic panel will join us for a virtual one-hour program to discuss important aspects of care for AML patients, with a focus on the emotional side effects, research on new treatments underway and finding suitable clinical trials.
Viewers will hear from noted expert Dr. Thomas W. LeBlanc, from Duke University Hospital, who conducted an observational study of AML patients on the relationship between emotional well-being and prognostic understanding, to learn more about the emotional impact of AML.
