Resources for Patients
Being diagnosed with a new health condition can be frightening. Patients often report feeling overwhelmed, and many seek additional information.
For some patients, just having someone to talk to can make all the difference. Others want to learn more about their condition. Some even want to meet with a dietician to learn how to tune their body into a lean, disease-fighting machine.
Call our clinic at 612-625-6401 for more information on the following department resources.
Nutrition counseling with a registered dietitian is available to our cancer patients.
Counseling includes an overview of general nutrition guidelines and nutrition guidelines during radiation or chemotherapy treatment, as well as insights into coping with appetite problems, difficulty eating, food safety and supplements.
Prostate Cancer Support
If you're dealing with prostate cancer, you need not be alone. A support group can provide the opportunity to learn about the various aspects of prostate cancer. You’ll also be invited to share experiences and feelings with others battling the disease.
Our prostate cancer support groups provide an educational program presented by a professional in the field followed by an open discussion session. Partners are encouraged to attend most groups, and some even offer a separate meeting for partners during part or all of the session.
If you've recently been diagnosed with prostate, bladder or kidney cancer, you may find it helpful to speak with a former patient who has undergone treatment or therapy for the condition you face.
Our Patient-to-Patient Program provides patients and families the opportunity to share experiences with someone who has taken the same journey. We find patients can gain valuable information and insight about their condition from our former patients.
