Perspectives of teens undergoing cancer treatment.

Not Just a Cancer Patient

Focusing on several articulate teens undergoing treatment, this video helps nurses, physicians, social workers and psychologists understand the needs and feelings of this engaging and very special population, in order to improve communication, increase patients' involvement in their own treatment, and give them a greater sense of control.

'This video demystifies the adolescent cancer experience while emphasizing the importance of open, honest and direct communication.' -Jamie Ostroff, PhD, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
