A new solution-focused well-being service for cancer patientsCategories: News
The solution-focused well-being service offers a variety of customised tools for supporting the patient’s well-being and rehabilitation. Methods used during the appointment include:
- solution-focused brief therapy,
- coaching, meditation,
- various relaxation and mindfulness exercises, and
- trauma relief methods.
– Meeting patients and their loved ones holistically, taking into account the needs of the body, mind and soul plays a central role in the new well-being service. The appointments emphasise respect for individuality, openness and meeting the patients and their loved ones on their own terms, based on their needs, says Satu Karjalainen-Klaver, Oncology Nurse and Solution-Focused Brief Therapist at Docrates Cancer Center.
The new service supports the patient’s rehabilitation, offering a possibility to discuss cancer related topics with an experienced oncology nurse. Some of the most common issues that can be discussed are fatigue, fear, anxiety, insomnia, lack of energy, emptiness after treatment, spiritual growth, and returning to work and everyday life.
The well-being service can be provided in person at the hospital, as a remote appointment, or alternatively as a walking meeting in the hospital’s immediate surroundings.
