The future of patient-centred cancer care and research
What might the future of personalised cancer patient care look like? Meet Linda, a cancer patient in the not-too-distant future. See how her experience – involving things like next-generation sequencing, liquid biopsies, clinical decision support software and fully personalised combination therapies – could evolve to look quite different from today’s cancer patient care. Progress in cancer care has been accelerating over the past several decades, and we are now traveling firmly in the direction of personalised medicine.

Cancer Care Program with Cancer Specialist Dr. Tarang Krishna & Astha Rathore
Videos related to cancer diseases, symptoms, causes, treatment and awareness in Hindi with Dr. Krishna on Care World TV Channel. In this world cancer is a word which can scare anyone. So you can understand that a person who is suffering from cancer or has suffered from cancer has faced what all kind of situation. It is a very dangerous and deadly diseases. Many researches are going in progress right now to find out the perfect solution for cancer diseases. - In this video we will understand every fact related to cancer from a specialist who has made homeopathy as a base and researched many thing and developed derivative of Immunotherapy named as Cancer Healer. So lets know it from world's renowned cancer specialist dr. tarang krishna. Who has BHMS degree and now he is a physician and till now with his father dr. hari krishna he has treated hundreds of patients with the help of Immunotherapy. - Dr. Tarang krishna has explained what is cancer? How it occurs? why people are so scared from cancer? For many people cancer has become a synonym of death, but it is not true now there are many solutions to cure cancer. In india most of the cancer patient think that they have only few days or months left to live. If you will be afraid from cancer then you will lose willpower to fight against cancer and then you will die for sure. Immunity power plays an important role and with good immunity power a person can fight and can win his/her fight against cancer. Immunotherapy: first of all you need to know what is immunotherapy and Immune system. Every person has a power to fight against diseases and that is Immunity. Eg - In a home three member got infected with a virus and the one got sick for 15 days, 2nd one for 10 days and third one does not get affected. So it depends upon immunity power of a person. So through Immunotherapy we increase that immunity power so a person can fight against such severe diseases. Immunotherapy act like bullet proof jacket which save our normal cell from attack of every infection. - For general diseases like fever, etc. people use antibiotic. So for cancer my father has developed "Cancer-Healer". "Cancer-Healer" medicine is a combination of 169 mother tinctures (A substance kept under alcohol to create mother tinctures). Once cancer come in our body it start spreading from o-stage to 4-stage. For example: bladder cancer go in up direction and it move to kidney, but before cancer spread to kidney we provide it immunotherapy so that it can protect kidney. - How cancer healer medicine is made: It is a combination of 169 mother tinctures. Every mother tinctures is a alcohol solution content medicinal property of substance which was dipped in alcohol for long time. People get scared before trying any new treatment: It is preventive as well as curative. If a person is undergoing a treatment like chemotherapy or radiotherapy and he wants to try this it will help him in many ways and it will also help him in fast recovery from diseases. Immunotherapy also nullify side effect of chemotherapy like hair fall, vomiting, weight loss, etc. - Immunotherapy will work as ray of hope for cancer patients and now cancer patient can think they can live normal life and not only can survive but also they can enjoy their life. http://www.cancerhealercenter.com/?utm_source=Youtube&utm_medium=description&utm_campaign=youtube_description
Patient Centered Cancer Care
The world of cancer is a world of change, maybe not the collective diseases, but the way health professionals approach it. The move is towards patient centered care. "It's an era of individualized therapy. One treatment may be suitable for you, while it may not be for another person," says Dr. Rie Aihara, surgical oncologist with the medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. The Regional Cancer Center relies on a multidisciplinary approach. One usually not found outside of academic medical centers. It assembles teams of specialists to evaluate patients together. "And the beauty of that is all of us can get together, in one setting, not just the treating specialist but also the radiologist, the pathologist, the nurse health navigators, genetic counselors. So every ancillary service this building has to offer can meet in one place, discuss the patient all in one setting, view the same pathology slides, the radiology, and then come up with a conclusion or a recommendation at the end of that session," says Dr. Aihara. Patients then meet with each care provider on the same day. "The feedback that we get from patients is wonderful," says Tammy Zinn, RN, with Lee Memorial Health System. Tammy Zinn is a nurse navigator- she troubleshoots problems that may affect a patient's health or wellbeing, from working through financial hardships to preparing for a mastectomy. "The breast health navigator meets with the patient initially and does education about her diagnosis and then navigates them through the whole health system," says Zinn. Studies show this is truly good medicine. Cancer patients with larger support groups handle the process better. The team approach is better at personalizing treatment and also equalizes access to quality care. "Fifty to sixty years ago, everybody with a diagnosis of cancer had surgery. It was a sort of kitchen sink therapy with chemotherapy. But now that they have so many options, whether it be a surgical option, lumpectomy vs. mastectomy, choices in radiation, individualized therapy meaning whether woman's tumors are responsive to hormones or not. All of these factor into what the treatment is going to be," says Dr. Aihara. Being patient centered puts a team of professionals to work on a single purpose. "I always tell our patients, it's teamwork," says Dr. Aihara.

Empowering the Patient: Holistic Cancer Care | Claire Berggren | TEDxYouth@SAS

She stresses treating the entire patient, mind, body and soul. Claire Berggren is a senior at Singapore American School.
