Caregiver Support Group

This is an online support group for caregivers who are caring for family members and/or friends with any cancer diagnosis. The support group includes skill building topics based on a published cancer manual. Weekly chapters are delivered by email to each participant which may take up to 15 minutes to read and participants can complete it at their own pace prior to the next session. 

In addition, this 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.  AI will also recommend additional individual tailored information and resources.

The first session will start on Tuesday June 22, 2021. The session will occur weekly for a total of 8 weeks. Each session lasts for approximately 90 minutes at the following times:

12:00 PM to 1:30 PM Pacific

1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Mountain (Saskatchewan)

2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Central 

3:00 PM to 4:30 PM Eastern

4:00 PM to 5:30 PM Atlantic 

Please register if you are interested in connecting with other caregivers.
