*Hot Topic Breakout Sessions: 

A.   Partnering to Optimize Quality of Life for Cancer Survivors

Presented by:

  • Chris Howard, LICSW, OSW-C, Oncology Resource Coordinator, Elliot Regional Cancer Center

  • Janice McDermott, Executive Director, New Hampshire Hospice and Palliative Care Organization 

Through the work of the Collaboration’s Quality of Life Task Force, cancer and palliative care professionals statewide partnered to work on a common goal: Optimizing the Quality of Life for Cancer Survivors. Key to the work of the task force is developing value - added tools for professional care teams and survivors. Hear from the co-leaders, how the Task Force members partnered to identify gaps, and develop and distribute effective survivorship tools.

B.   Adaptation of Survivorship Care Plans in the age of the EMR: Challenges & Practical Solutions
Presented by:

  • Darcy M. Kreis MS, RN Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Lebanon

  • Elizabeth McGrath, MSN, APRN, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center, Lebanon

In 2007 the Institute of Medicine recommended patients be presented with a Survivorship Care Plan (SCP) at the completion of cancer care. Although many templates have been developed there is no one method that is proven to be superior. In addition we are now confronted with how to incorporate the SCP into the EMR. Join us as we discuss strategies to overcome these challenges.  

C.   Helping Survivors Live Tobacco Free   

Presented by:

  • Kate McNally, Program Manager, MS, TTS,  Cheshire Coalition for Tobacco Free Communities, DH Keene
  • Teresa M Brown, BS, TTS, NH Division of Public Health Services, Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Program

A healthy cancer center is a tobacco free center; what does this mean and how do you do accomplish it? In this session, participants will gain an understanding of best practices for treating tobacco dependence and will learn about tools and resources to help your organization support survivors in their journey toward freedom from tobacco.

D.   Creative Survivorship Planning & Partnering

Presented by:

  • Roshani Patel MD, FACS, Breast Surgeon Dartmouth-Hitchcock Manchester

A structured rehabilitation program can decrease morbidity and improve outcomes. In this session, participants will hear about tools Dr. Patel is using to help patients succeed with exercise and eating better. We will also discuss how exercise and dietary modification can impact quality of life, improve overall health, and decrease healthcare costs.

E.   Utilizing Partnerships to Address Arsenic in Private Well Water

Presented by:

  • Paul Susca, Supervisor - Planning, Protection & Assistance, Drinking Water and Groundwater Bureau, NH Department of Environmental Services

  • Kathrin Lawlor, BA, Community Engagement Core Coordinator, Dartmouth Toxic Metals Superfund Research Program, Dartmouth College

Arsenic is a common contaminant in private wells in NH and has been linked to a variety of negative health outcomes, including bladder, lung, liver, prostate and skin cancer. In this session, participants will learn about current efforts, implemented by a variety of partners, to address private well water quality, with a focus on arsenic. Participants will also learn how to ensure their own well water quality and how to help their communities promote well water testing.

Organizer

New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Collaboration

The NH CCC, an initiative of the Foundation for Healthy Communities, is a partnership of individuals and organizations working together to eliminate cancer, the leading cause of death in the state of New Hampshire.

NH CCC members developed the 2015-2020 NH Cancer Plan to guide our activities. Activities are targeted toward addressing health disparities using  policy, systems, and environmental change approaches that optimize health outcomes for all residents of NH.


The Plan is organized around three goals. These include:


1. Foster communities and systems that support and reinforce healthy lifestyles.
2. Prevent & detect cancer at its earliest stage.
3. Optimize quality of life for those affected by cancer.

We're proud of our accomplishments, but there is still much to be done. It is the breadth of experience and knowledge of our members that leads to our success. You can participate in a shared vision to reduce the burden of cancer by joining one of the Task Forces or Committees and sharing your expertise, resources, and passion. Learn more at our upcoming annual meeting on April 5, 2017.

Together — Eliminating Cancer.
