EDUCATION

  • Pathways Women’s Cancer Teaching Project
    Breast and gynecological cancer survivors (“Patient Educators”) educate residents and medical, nursing, physician assistant, pastoral care and undergraduate students about the perspectives, stresses and needs of women with cancer, enabling them to become more empathetic and interpersonally effective at providing care. Patient Educators help enhance patient-centered humanistic healthcare through personal story-telling, a powerful learning tool. The Project also empowers women with cancer to make meaning of their disease and find support among their fellow educators.  If you are interested in becoming a Patient Educator, or you would like our Patient Educators to meet with students or residents involved in your healthcare institution or university, please contact Lesley Andrews.
