Educational and Family Support Webinar Series

The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s webinar series seeks to alleviate the social isolation and emotional distress brain tumor families face by providing a nationwide, online community of support where families hear from experts in relevant fields and other families who have experiences similar to theirs.

These virtual events feature carefully chosen experts, provide opportunities for families to ask questions, and provide information and resources relevant to the brain tumor journey.

Addressing the Health-Related Quality of Life Challenges Families Face When Caring for Survivors of a Pediatric Brain Tumor

Join the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation on Thursday, June 23, at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT, for Addressing the Health-Related Quality of Life Challenges Families Face When Caring for Survivors of a Pediatric Brain Tumor. This webinar will feature a presentation by Dr. Janet Deatrick, Professor Emerita of Nursing, University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Deatrick’s current research focuses on young adult survivors of childhood brain tumors living at home with their parents or caregivers and the challenges that this poses for the family unit.

In this webinar, participants will be able to:

Describe the common challenges families face when caring for a survivor with ongoing medical needs 

Identify ways parents can become more effective managing the health-related challenges their survivors face 

Describe lessons learned from the survivor perspective about how their families can contribute to their quality of life 

Explore resources and tools to aid families in managing the long-term quality of life for the survivor 

Following the presentation, we will have a Q&A session with Dr. Deatrick. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions through a text chat. This webinar is free, but you must register below to attend. A recording will be made available after the event.
