A cancer diagnosis is never easy. Feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger and despair are difficult but normal reactions when a child is diagnosed with a serious illness. Effective coping and emotional adjustment is often dependent on access to psychosocial support that is tailored to address the challenges most often encountered by patients and their families. At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we offer a comprehensive cancer wellness program for patients and families who are receiving treatment through our Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
About the Wellness Program
The Wellness Program in the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of professionals who identify and address all the psychosocial needs of our patients and families. Members of the Wellness Team include:
Psychologists who provide psychosocial evaluation and a range of psychotherapeutic services and interventions
Social workers who provide information about the oncology treatment process, help families identify strengths and vulnerabilities, and facilitate an environment for open dialogue
Child life specialists who coach children on behavioral techniques to help them manage hospital-related fear and anxiety, and who also assist with reintroduction to school
Children's Hospital Colorado partners with NRC Health to gather star ratings and reviews from patients, residents and family survey data.
