Information Sessions

Information session

Cancer Council Queensland offers a range of support and information sessions throughout the year, in locations across the state. These sessions are conducted in a supportive group environment for people affected by cancer, their carers, partners, friends and families.

Presentations from experienced health professionals cover general information on cancer, treatment options available, survivorship, healthy living, coping tools and support services available.

Our programs assist people to adjust to the diagnosis, treatment and life after cancer treatment by providing:

  • Support – providing the opportunity to share experiences with others going through a similar experience.
  • Information – about cancer and treatments to help people prepare for treatment.
  • Support services available – providing information on support services available to people affected by cancer.

If would like further information about information sessions, email communitysupportservices@cancerqld.org.au or phone Cancer Council 13 11 20.

Register Now
  • Venue: WEBINAR, Online
  • Region: Australia
  • When: 7pm-8pm AEST
Registration ends 1 hour before webinar starts

Following a cancer diagnosis your sleep may become disrupted. This might be because you’re worried about being diagnosed with cancer or because of some of the treatment’s side effects.

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, your mind is probably occupied with many different thoughts and emotions, and sleep may be low on your list of concerns.

But getting a good nights sleep can improve your quality of life, and make it easier to deal with the other issues your are now facing.

The webinar will discuss some practical strategies to improve your sleep.
