Introduction of the Course :
Practitioners identify delivery of affordable and equitable care for Cancer as one of the greatest public health challenges confronting India. However, while there is shared concern over less than commensurate availability of diagnostic and treatment facilities to address an expected burgeoning of Cancer cases, relatively little is said about the social care aspects of living with Cancer.
It is in anticipation of this unarticulated deficit that Tata Institute of Social Sciences and Sanjeevani ... Life Beyond Cancer have introduced a “Certificate Course in Professional Oncological Care Giving”.
The express intent of the Course will be to cultivate a pool of professional Oncology caregivers to function as aides to Cancer patients. The course will commence with a batch of 20 candidates for a period of 4 months. Candidates successfully completing certification will receive references or will be placed via organizations working with Cancer patients.
Positive diagnosis of Cancer challenges the entire sense of well-being of an individual; resulting in psychological vulnerability and alienation. Patients need dedicated supervision to successfully transition and settle into prescribed treatment modules. Designated caregivers need to interpret symptoms of discomfort and successively attend to the same. Wards also require regular counselling and encouragement.
Professional caregivers therefore need to be seasoned handlers; mature and competent enough to engage with patients, figure their needs and navigate them through an elaborate and often-exhausting series of medical interventions.
Accordingly, the Course curriculum is designed to focus amply on empathetic, emotive, nutritional, paramedical, physio-therapeutic as well as spiritual aspects of Oncological care. Pedagogy will combine regular and experimental classroom teaching with immersive field training.
Finally, it is necessary to acknowledge that the burden of Cancer manifests as high economic costs to affected households. Enfeeblement, loss of confidence, loss of livelihood and socio-economic abandonment are common outcomes for an affected individual.
