Cancer Related Brain Fog – Education Session Recap
For years many cancer survivors have reported feeling like their brain does just not function as well as it did before cancer came along… and now there is the science to prove it!
There has been a lot of research done in this area and a leading expert Dr. Heather Palmer, a Neuropsychologist and founder of Maximum Capacity, an organization dedicated to helping individuals improve or maintain their cognitive abilities (www.maximumcapacity.org), has developed a program to help cancer survivors regain and maintain their optimal brain function. Using very simple external and internal strategies, the Maximum Capacity course on Brain Fog can help cancer survivors immensely.
At the April 2012 Survivorship Education Session in the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, Calgary, Dr. Greg Lucier, an experienced facilitator for the Maximum Capacity Brain Fog program talked about some of the potential causes of Brain Fog and gave a brief overview of the topics covered in the Brain Fog course. If you are interested in learning more about Brain Fog please visit Dr. Heather Palmers website (www.maximumcapacity.org). Also, Wellspring Calgary offers the Maximum Capacity Brain Fog course 3 times per year and it is open to all cancer survivors.
