About This Episode:
Welcome to Series 3 of the Spot On podcast.
In Series 1, we focused on the fundamentals of skin cancer, interviewing some of Australia’s leading clinicians on the topic. In this season, we’re focused more on the human side of a diagnosis.
Series 2 we looked more on the human side of a diagnosis.
In this series, we take a step back and look holistically at a skin cancer diagnosis – providing the answers to the questions many people have about looking after their mental health related to their skin cancer diagnosis.
Dr. Eleanor De Ath-Miller is a registered psychologist with a Doctoral degree in clinical neuropsychology. She is a coach and consultant in private practice, and also works as a Senior Clinical Neuropsychologist at a public hospital in Melbourne. Eleanor is always looking for ways to make evidence-based health and wellbeing information more meaningful for individuals, leaders and teams, so they can tune into their bodies and minds, manage change and challenge, and do more of what matters in life.
We look at how you may feel about a skin cancer diagnosis and ways to adjust, what are normal reactions to a diagnosis, how to manage stress and other coping strategies, and preparing the people around you.
