Enhancing Cancer Survivorship: Expert Insights

Enhancing Cancer Survivorship: Insights from Dr. Ashu Jain

Cancer, a formidable adversary, not only challenges the physical health of patients but also takes a toll on their overall quality of life. In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Dr. Ashu Kumar Jain, Head of Pain Medicine and Palliative Care at Artemis Hospitals in Gurgaon, shares valuable insights on how to empower cancer survivors and enhance their quality of life post-treatment.

Quality of Life (QOL) for Cancer Patients:

Dr. Jain emphasizes that the Quality of Life (QOL) of a cancer patient encompasses physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being. He stresses the importance of understanding the challenges faced by individuals undergoing life-changing cancer experiences.

Palliative Care and Empathy:

Palliative care, including pain management and emotional support, plays a significant role in improving a cancer patient's QOL. Dr. Jain highlights the importance of empathy and a caring attitude from family, medical caregivers, and professional colleagues.

Physical Rehabilitation:

Adequate nutrition, physical rehabilitation, and physical therapy are essential for enhancing the physical condition of cancer patients, aiding in their recovery and overall well-being.

Psychological Support:

Psychological counseling and emotional support from family and friends are crucial. They not only strengthen a patient's resolve to recover but also add meaning to their life during and after cancer treatment.

Financial Planning:

Planning for the financial aspects of cancer treatment, future contingencies, and insurance can alleviate the worry of resources required for treatment, reducing stress on patients and their families.

Holistic Healing:

Dr. Jain acknowledges the therapeutic power of activities such as music, dance, and art in healing a cancer patient's emotional well-being during and after treatment.

Dr. Ashu Jain's insights shed light on the multifaceted approach required to enhance the Quality of Life for cancer survivors. From palliative care to psychological support and financial planning, a holistic approach is key to helping individuals thrive beyond their cancer journey.
