4.2 Patient Case Study: Part 4

Presented over several modules, this case study follows a patient, parents, and physician through the course of cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. In Part 4, you will hear from the patient perspective, including what survivorship means to the patient.

Learning Objectives

  • Articulate how the patient and family used social media to help others
  • Explain what it means to this patient to be a survivor

Please note that in each of these case study videos, the experiences, thoughts, and outcomes presented are specific to these individuals and may not align with your own experiences. If you or a loved one have experience with cancer, these case study videos may cause you to recall past experiences of your own. Before moving to the next lesson, consider taking a moment to check in with yourself about how each of these videos make you feel. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to feel about this topic.
