Restoring Body Image & Sexual Health After Cancer Support Group - All Provinces

For many women, a diagnosis of cancer and its treatment can have a significant impact on body image, emotional well-being, sexual health and relationships, even after treatments have finished. This support group will help women with cancer to address concerns about body image and sexuality. 

This group is open for Canadians from all provinces. A research component is included in the group to evaluate the usefulness of a new artificial intelligence system (AI) built into this group.  The AI will review texts posted during the session and help facilitators identify and respond to group members' emotional needs more effectively. Participants will receive automated emails from our system to provide additional informational support and resources.

The start date is planned for Tuesday, January 12 and the group will run for 8 weeks for approximately 90 minutes.

10:00 AM to 11:30 PM Pacific

11:00 PM to 12:30 PM Mountain 

12:00 AM to 1:30 PM Central

1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern

2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Atlantic

Please register if you are interested in connecting with other patients living with cancer.

There are a total of 8 weekly sessions and each session includes a specific skill-building topic based on a published cancer manual. Weekly chapters will be delivered by email to participants which may take up to 15 minutes to read and participants can complete it at their own pace prior to each weekly session.

In addition, this active treatment support group will include a research component to evaluate the usefulness of a new artificial intelligence system (AI) built into this group.  The AI will review texts posted during the session and help facilitators identify and respond to group members' emotional needs more effectively. Participants will receive automated emails from our system to provide additional informational support and resources.
