As a healthcare professional treating people with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), it is important to understand the psychological and emotional impact of the disease on patients and their families. In addition, taking care of your own well-being is essential to prevent burnout and maintain the ability to provide the best possible care for your patients.
The CLLempowerment.com website provides many resources available to support patients and hematologists, and is created by a multidisciplinary scientific team, composed of health and clinical psychologists, as well as hematologists and physicians who are collaborating with patient advocacy groups. The website includes resources on areas such as managing time, breaking bad news, identifying and responding to patient emotions, shared-decision making, doctor-patient communication and self-care. The resources take the form of leaflets, podcasts and role-play videos.
By utilizing the resources available on this website, you can provide more comprehensive care for the people with CLL you treat.
