Educational animation video on cancer-related fatigue (CRF)
Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is one of the most common symptoms and problems faced by cancer patients, which often has a big impact on the quality of life; however, in clinical practice, cancer patients rarely actively mention fatigue symptoms. The problem that caused by cancer-related fatigue is overlooked and is under-treated.
In order to more accurately understand the prevalence and treatment status of cancer-related fatigue, Taiwan Society of Cancer Palliative Medicine conducted an epidemiological survey of “cancer-related fatigue” among cancer patients in Taiwan in 2015. In 2017, the “Guidelines for Clinical Treatment of Cancer-induced Fatigue” was published and compiled. In addition to the continued medical education (CME) programs started in 2018, we developed and provided the education tools to help health care professionals (HCPs) and to educate people about cancer-related fatigue in an easy-to-understand way.In 2020, we provided the English version of educational animation video on cancer-related fatigue (CRF). We hope it helps more people know about how to manage cancer-related fatigue. We will continue to work on this and you support will be highly appreciated.
